Community events

Why didn't I attend community events as a child, especially since I grew up in the same neighborhood in which the boys growing up?  Were these events nonexistent or at least a rarer phenomenon back then (probably not, I suspect they were MORE plentiful)?  Maybe my parents didn't know about them.  Did my parents know about them but did not feel welcomed--did they know about them but did not feel they were important to attend? 

We love taking the boys to these functions, grounding them in their community and running into friends and neighbors.  With all the new developments in the area, it's nice to feel like a small town again.

Our favorite of the day was the Station tour, holding cell and all!
