    • I think he was looking for you, actually. So when I said “wave for Ree”, he knew what was up! And the big hose is just a bonus! lol

      Ree, I googled other cities’ Juneteenth parades & celebrations to see what they are like. Um, Lorain 365 might be traveling to Oberlin for this next year…

Thanks for visiting Lorain 365! Your feedback is welcomed and appreciated!
