Cancer Awareness Day

We must give Palm Creek credit for supporting such a worthwhile cause as Cancer Awareness. The park has dedicated time, effort, and dollars behind the project for several years.

Friday night was quite impressive with the lighting of 2000 luminaries lining the roadway from the front entrance all the way to the clubhouse. To add excitement to the event, a hot air balloon was inflated and we got to see first hand how they are raised for launching. I venture to guess that the operator may have drummed up some new business for giving rides as there were certainly a lot of spectators. I tried to get some pictures, but as you can see, they didn't turn out too well.

I did, however, get one good photo of the firey gas that gets blasted to fill the balloon. It's really quite amazing to see.

On Saturday, residents were proud to march around the park as part of the awareness celebration. Don't they look pretty in pink!
