Curtain Falls on Another Tulip Time

Letters from Pella Cast Photo LR

You can tell, by the bright shade of red on my nose and forehead, that the last day of Tulip Time 2009 was a bright & sunny one. Mom Hall & Suzanna spent Friday night with us, but took off for home about noon on Saturday. As they were pulling out, my sister Jody and her kids were pulling in. Not that we saw much of them, mind you. They were off for Jaarsma's before I could finish saying "Welkom."

Wendy and I headed up to have Pella bologna corndogs for lunch, then headed to West Market Park to take in all the vendors, running into plenty of friends and stopping to chat. We found the one food stand that had homemade Dutch letters and bought two just before they ran out. We sat in the sun and watched people for a while (thus, the burn on my face). Then, we headed to the Community Center for the final peformance of "Letters from Pella." The show was very well received, though attendance was down this year compared to previous Tulip Time shows.

After the show, Wendy and I grabbed one more corndog on the walk home. Then, while most folks were headed to the final parade, we headed to our cast party. It was fun, as always, to gather with our compatriots of the stage and laugh together as we put another show behind us.
