This past Saturday (20th June, 2009), my better half and I had a lot of fun attending the 2009 Braeside Community Parade and post-parade BBQ party organized by Kim Edwards and her team of volunteers. I believe it is events like this that helps build and create a sense of community. The parade reminds me of the 25 years of Bill Craig’s Boxing Day Classic (see videos and pix) that I blogged about in 2007.
I think we need more people like Kim and Bill in communities we live in. Will you be your “Kim” or “Bill” in your own community and help make good things happen?
Kim Edwards (the lady in the right) was the lead organizer.
The following are some thumbnails (click to zoom) of the parade. Enjoy
