One of the best events that we had last year was our Dog House Parade. The response was better than anything we could have hoped for. We raised a ton of money for the animal shelter, nothing like it ever.

So we are starting to plan our fall and the big events we have coming up and need some help. I know the Flakes trip give-away is going to be highly sought after since it sold out in an hour. That trip for two is great.

But I'm trying to think of a new parade fund raiser though for another great cause. I thought maybe we could have a furniture parade. People could bring in handmade furniture like tables, clocks, beds, cabinets, etc., that might work.

Maybe we could have an antique parade where people donate something old to be auctioned off.

Maybe a collectible parade where people bring in a collectible item... I know whatever it is, the banquet will sell out like last year, and people like fun one-of-a-kind events.

The secret is what we have to buy or bid on.

The dog houses were awesome but not everyone needs a doghouse.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated because these things take time to put together.

By the way, if we do one this year we will also have an event coordinator. Something that I know I will be retiring from.

Thanks for your help on this one.

Stay safe out there today and we'll see ya tomorrow at 5.

We Stand With Emily.
