As our Dispatch called "park is clear" on our two-way radios this afternoon, the first clap of thunder boomed.
All the darling children we saw today were returning to school safe in their buses and dry as a bone.
Well, almost all ...
Maddy, from Boonville, and some friends took advantage of the sunny weather and played in the fountains at Holidog's FunTown.
Today is Play Day - our twenty-first annual. Each year, our friends at Easter Seals Rehabilitation Center in Evansville invite 2,500 children with disabilties along with their teachers and chaperones. And we all have one heck of a good time together.
We donate the discounted admissions proceeds to the Rehab Center - this year to benefit the Milestones Child Development Center and to underwrite children's therapy. Over the past two decades, that donation has topped $300,000.
It was a beautiful day filled with beautiful laughter and smiles.
It's our favorite day all season.
