It's a start!!

The Lyon County Central Committee beat out the Fernley Republican Women in this year's 4th of July parade in Fernley.

It was hot, but not too, and we had enough candy (70 lbs!!) to get us to the end of the parade without having to tear our entry entry apart for something to give to the kids at the end of the parade route who notoriously get the short end of the stick as far as candy volume.

Many thanks to Robert G. for loaning his trailer, Rita for providing her truck, and the efforts of Maria, Nathaniel, Rita, Brad, Leigh and Carissa who all helped to decorate our entry and walk (Brad) and ride (the rest of us) the parade route and toss candy to the kids.

And many, many thanks to those Fernley folks who expressed support, both at the parade and at the park afterwards.

And most of all, thank you to all the veterans and current active duty, reserves and National Guard who put their lives on the line for us.
