I hope you had a day yesterday as beautiful as we had in Springfield. I spent part of it in Phelps Grove Park, a lovely park where our family often went to relax and picnic when I was a child.
Items that were going into the 100-year time capsule were displayed on half a dozen tables. They included pictures, magazines, scrapbooks, ball caps, a horseshoe, and other items relevant to the various parks in the system. My book was relevant because Riverbluff Cave is part of the system.
I saw lots of old friends yesterday, including Virginia Gleason, former director for children’s books for Springfield-Greene County Library District. Many others too. It was a pleasant time.
After several presentations about the history of our park system during the past 100 years, the time capsule was duly buried. I took a few shots to share.
