This month’s topic: “Humanism’s Responsibility to be Realists”
About 10 adults and five children were in the UU Church contingent in the annual Neal Moore Springfield Labor Day Parade on a warm summer day Monday. The parade is named in honor of Neal Moore, a former labor historian, editor and leader who was a member of the First UU Church in Springfield.
Much thanks to Mike who furnished and drove his F250 pickup which carried supplies and participants who did not walk.
The parade began on Grand just south of the MSU campus and ended at Fassnight Park.Some took part in the post-parade events, which included a picnic, games and bouncy buildings for children, music, speakers by candidates for public office, booths and an antique car show.
