Town Talk

Howdy and welcome to Town Talk, the column that agrees with a U.S.Marine Corps training manual, both militarily, politically and romantically when it says, “When the pin is pulled, Mr. Grenade is not our friend.”

July Fourth parade volunteers needed

The good folks who run the Vail America Days parade need a few volunteers to make it run smoothly. You’ll get a free Vail America Days T-shirt and have a chance to see the parade from a new perspective. Call JoAnn at 904-1467.

And while we’re in Vail for the parade, this year’s theme is “Proud to be an American.”

They’re honoring military, both active and veterans, and are looking for active military personnel to march in the parade and help serve as Grand Marshals.

Again, call JoAnn at 904-1467 for more info, or to sign up your military hero.

Vail Gymnastics brings back the gold

Vail Gymnastics parents would like to thank David Ward, Tony Russo and their team of coaches for the stellar season Vail Gymnastics had. Levels 3 and 4 were the State Champions at the EAGLES meet this past Saturday in Evergreen, beating 10 other teams from around the state! Go Team!

Birthday Brigade

We’ve been gone, but the Princess P is still on the job.

n Mitch Rosavy of Flattops Electric had a birthday not so very long ago. Wish him nothing but good stuff.

n When the Allman Brothers (Brother?) wrote the song, “Sweet Melissa” they were obviously writing about Sweet Melissa Howard. She had a birthday in the recent past. See that the fun continues. Chris certainly intends to.
