"Our Labor Day Weekend..." 'Judith Whitehead' (Inspiration Friday)

Judith Whitehead lives in Amherst New York
( A suburb of Buffalo, N.Y.)
 and has worked in the ophthalmology
 field of medicine for nearly 40 years

Our Labor Day Weekend

One of the nice advantages of living in a smaller town like  Clarence are the nice local fund raisers that are done.
Soups on!   Such a deal!
20 bucks a gallon for Manhattan
clam chowder,
including the bucket ..
.and so full of ingredients it's more
like a stew.

Labor Day is the annual Clarence Town Fireman's Chowder sale.  Literally gallons and gallons of the chowder is made for a fundraiser with ingredients such as chicken, vegetables, meat and other assorted items which makes for a thick pourage-like soup .  

Locals line up for blocks to buy a gallon, bowl or taste.  For $20.00  a gallon, pail provided, its a steal.  We freeze some for the winter and enjoy it right away as well.

A parade follows with an amusement park set up for the kids: perfect weather along with a perfect way to wind up the official summer time. 

"Judy, Judy, Judy!"
A cute story about a donkey!  Please watch!

Got it, was confused because you say, "One of the nice advantages of living in a smaller town like Clarence." Your bio has you living in E. Amherst? Now you see what it's like running for public office! ;-)

Can you imagine running for public office and having every word you say dissected under a microscope? I would go crazy, (crazier!)
