A Nite of thanks to Downieville & its members. Not sure where to post it.
As Mark and I reflect on the delightful meal, exciting carnival preparations by the students (not their parents), and the excitement of each community member, we felt so at ‘home’ last night at the Downieville school. A ‘home’ where the people are few, but empowered to give, share and love one another. A ‘home’ where, people watch over each other’s ‘young’ins’ and want them to have a special day or moment. A ‘home’ where businesses go that extra step to give and show their support. A ‘home’ where everyone comes out to cheer on other friends, families and our dear elder folks. This is what makes our town of Downieville special, its history, it’s people and its future’s so important. When you live here for a long time you may become accustom to “the normal”, but this place is not “just normal, it’s special”. There’s a spot for each and everyone of us to fit. We are so blessed to share a portion of our life with you. Thank you Darcy White, you are amazing, you inspire me and our town is grateful for all you do. Good job once again. Happiest of holidays to you all. Let’s protect our ‘sleepy hallow’, keep it safe and pure for generations to follow. May your home and the town we call “home” be blessed with great health, laughter and happiness for all.
