As the shadow of the abrupt firing of popular city clerk, Sally Hansen looms over the city of Athol, the old Broadway adage applies. The show must go on. Many hold Sally in an affectionate place in their hearts including this writer. But it will all play out with many still hoping that this is all a mistake.
Having said that, here are some of the events that will take place Saturday, August 9 in Athol, Idaho.
Line up for the parade is Davis Lane and starts at 9:00 am. Every year we have a great turnout of antique cars, neighborhood and church entries and those just there to have fun. As usual, the parade kicks off with the Athol American Legion color guard which does a great job. Please, those of you that wear hats everywhere but bed, take the damn thing of when the flag goes by.
I will again announce the parade this year, which starts at 10:00 am.
Following the parade, will be a fair in city park consisting of fun games for the kids and delicious eats too. There will be an auction of donated items during the period following the parade.
Not to be left out, don't forget the Victory Auto Parts car show which will occur at the auto parts location on hwy 54.
8th Annual Car Show @ Victory Auto Parts from 9:00AM to 3:00 PM, No registration fees, goodie bags, T-Shirts, Trophies (CNC Plasma Cut), Music by Jen, Store Discounts and drawings all day for participants.
