Today was the start of Ferndale’s two day Sesquicentennial celebration. From 6-9pm the merchants on Main Street hosted a hospitality night, serving refreshments in their shops. So even though we weren’t quite ready to open, we displayed some pictures, some of Lori’s clothing collection and served punch and cookies. We even put $20 in the cash register, which only begins to pay off the $500 it cost to produce the posters. Oh well. At 9pm we joined in the costume parade and dance in the parking lot. You can find Lori in the middle of the photo wearing her blue dress. Congratulations to Lori for losing enough weight so that she could wear that dress again.
