Crafton Celebrates Parade
- For those of you who no longer live in the Crafton area or didn't get
a chance to come out and see the parade because of the weather I have
posted some pictures in the "Photos" section of the website. Go there
and look for the album titled, "2005 Crafton Celebrates."
It was beautiful all day, until the time for the parade approached.
Dark clouds rolled in, but it looked like they would soon pass over.
Unfortunately, the rain started about 7:00 pm, just as the parade
started. It wasn't a heavy rain, but pretty continuous. Luckily, the
parade was able to go on, though it was a little soggy. The Crafton Crocodiles may have enjoyed that part of it though. By the time
the parade arrived at Crafton park, the rain stopped and the sun came
out again. At least it was dry for the start of the other festivities.
Notice that the St. Philip contingent of the parade is carrying a
banner to raise awareness for the Centennial Restoration project now
underway at the church.
Don't be confused. We know the parish is way older than 100 (it was
founded in 1835). It's the church building that will be 100 in
February of 2006. The restoration project is to clean and repair the
plaster walls and ceilings in the church, paint it, refurbish the
pews, and restore the terrazzo floors.
