I would like to thank the Old Settlers Committee for selecting me as the grand marshal for this year's Old Settlers Days activities.
It was indeed a privilege and an honor to be chosen. Riding in the parade and seeing many friends and neighbors was the best part of all the festivities. I did bring a baseball glove to catch any tomatoes that may be thrown from friends who are Cincinnati Reds and Chicago Cubs fans.
Special thanks to the committee for putting on an outstanding celebration this year after having to cancel in 2020.
