"Thank you for the vote of confidence, Shotsie!  I don't fully understand why the funds were withheld, so thank you for correcting that it is a county issue.  I agree with you that a vendor booth fee would be a logical option.  I…"

"So this year's parade and celebration almost did not occur - my friend Roger heads this event, and he said that the county did not budget for the parade - $0.  Hence his attempt to crowd-source the cost.  In previous years, the county…"
