Bloomfield Fall Festival notes

Posted Thursday, October 8, 2009, at 1:53 PM

Hello all and welcome to the North Stoddard Countian's newest blog, "Around Bloomfield." This blog, as it says in the description is going to be used to post local news or tidbits that for either space or time constraints might not have made the print edition of the newspaper.

Since we're still in the early stages this could change somewhat, but in general will contain occasional posts of stories, newsbriefs, extra photos from a story or basically whatever we decide the readers might enjoy.

So, if you have any thoughts or news tips make sure to drop us a line!

To get this off to a good start, here are some notes about this weekend's Bloomfield Fall Festival taken from the City of Bloomfield's website at http://cityofbloomfield.weebly.com/

I tried viewing the upcoming events but was told I don't have permission to view them from the calendar of events. What gives?? This is from the City of Bloomfield website.

Around Bloomfield's response:
Hmm I'm not real sure what the problem is unless maybe the calendar hasn't been updated in a while. I'll see what I can find out.

Corey

Thanks Corey.

Parade wasn't as good as previous years because of having to be postponed. Highlight: the horses at the end. Biggest joke: Sue Welborn as grand marshall.

I responded to your rude comment on the main page, Swift, but I see you've posted it here, too. You may be unaware that the Bloomfield Fall Festival is sponsored by the Lion's Club, an organization which was founded in Bloomfield by former NSC writer ELfreda Cox. When she died at a young age, Sue Welborn agreed to continue that cause by taking the helm of the club. Many people would have let it go, but Sue is a civic-minded person and a good friend of ELfreda's, so she took it upon herself to step up.

Your unreasoning hatred of all things Democratic clouds your judgment and renders your opinions suspect.

Does scripture stick in your throat?

Very well said gl, some folks can be so righteous and so rude and crude.
