It was my first time sitting and watching the parade go by from one of the benches outside Whole Foods! I actually posted on my Facebook page this morning. It was once again a wonderful event. Thanks for the pictures in The Swellesley Report today! The highlight for me was seeing our retired WFD Chief deLorie go by and for my almost 3 yo great grandson it was the fire trucks!

I didn’t see your other half, Deb, was she on another assignment?
