Zayde Dotts Easter Parade
Wow. What a difference. After more
than a dozen years it was out turn to be a part of the parade instead of hosting
one of the bigger Easter parties around. The move to Bushfield and some
work travel meant that a party was not practical this year, so it was Bobbie and
Daniel getting to go to the parties that everyone else was having!
There was a solemn aspect to this year's parade: it
was dedicated to Zayde Dotts. Mrs. Dotts was the lady behind the original
Easter Parade and a long time resident of Monument Ave. She died a few
months ago, but she was a big reason why the Parade and Monument Ave itself are
celebrated today. Neat lady.
