Tilicum Centenial Celebration

Had a wonderful visit with members of the Tilicum VFW at Harry Todd Park where the Tilicum Centenial Celebration was held. I have so many great memories as a child coming to this park to play and go swimming.

Here I am with Katelynn and her brother Tristan. They were so cute!

It is great to see our youth out in the community making a difference. These two young ladies volunteered to help make this event a success! The girl on my left is the granddaughter of Jim Taylor - the man who made this event possible!

I got to be a guest of honor at the Tilicum Centenial, so the City thought it would be appropriate to present Jim Taylor with his own sash which read - Mr. Tilicum 2010! Jim Taylor has been a life long resident of the City of Tilicum and was the organizer of this fabulous event. To my right is my City Mayor Doug Richardson of Lakewood. Lakewood is a neighboring City of Tilicum. Mayor Richardson issued a proclamation stating August 14th as Tilicum Day!

This dear lady was one of my son's pre-school special education teachers. Her name is Cynthia. Not only does she work with special needs children, but she is a wife, mom and member of our Washington State National Guard and is a Tilicum VFW member as well. Thank you for your service Cynthia in more ways than one - you are an angel!

In the middle is Bob - my new friend. He sure had a fun time at the classic car show taking tons of pictures of engines with my camera! To the very right is the owner of the truck behind us - he was so kind!

Above with Jane McCarthy - former King 5 reporter who now works as a Spokane television news co-anchor. She grew up in Tilicum and acted as the Master of Ceremonies for today's event.
