When I read in the Courier that there would be added security measures, etc. for the Christmas Parade, I thought to myself that it was kind of overkill - after all, it won’t happen here. But as I walked past the big trucks parked strategically so no one could drive a vehicle into a crowd of families enjoying the parade it struck me that it won’t happen here because of the precautions taken. I enjoyed the parade, and the lighting ceremony, knowing our City’s Finest were watching our backs. Thank You!
