Being selected as the Grand Marshal of the Harvest Festival is an honored position in the Gothenburg Community. Every year the Chamber of Commerce reaches out to community members and gathers nominations for the title. This year, Lori and Bruce Clymer were selected to receive the title and the honored position at the front of the Harvest Parade.
The Harvest Festival Parade was held on Sunday, September 19 at 10:00 AM. The community came out, lined the sides of Lake Avenue, and participated in both a Lions Club Pancakes breakfast and a Mobile Breakfast hosted by the Swede Tennis Team. Though the Glow Party held the previous night at Lake Helen kept many community members out late, they still showed up with high spirits for the traditional parade.
Q: I’m the proud father of a beautiful 16-yearold daughter. However, I’m not the only one who’s noticed how she has blossomed. She’s getting more and more attention from boys her age, and I expect The Dating Question is right around the corner. How should I approach the issue of interacting with and vetting any potential boyfriends?
“The naughtiest thing I ever did was slap my dad on his back when I got mad,” shared my grandmother, Anita O’Hare, as she stood in the kitchen cooking lunch. I thought this was so weird because I’d always heard that as a child she was such a kind and caring person. O’Hare, who was born in the blizzard of 1949 at her grandma’s house in the middle of nowhere (Eggbert, Wyoming) was always one to help others and not really judge anyone. As she herself told me, “ I was always friends or nice to the smelly kids.”
