On Thursday, September 13, 2007, the Township of Belleville held its annual block party. All were invited including neighbors from nearby towns. There were large crowds of friendly people, good food, good music, excellent entertainment and so much fun for the kids. Having just researched for my recent book how the original village settlers entertained themselves, I am absolutely certain that every one of the old Dutchmen, their wives and all of their children would have come to this event, thoroughly enjoyed it and helped to show us how to have a good time. It was a really good place to live then and still is now.
For anyone who missed the fun and excitement, here is a display of a few selected photos. I am trying-out a new photo display technique. Click on a small picture at the bottom and it will appear next. Click on the large picture and it will freeze for viewing. Click again and the display will continue. Hope you enjoy it.
There is a new photo display of cherry blossoms caught in a snow storm over at the website. Here is a link to the page, there are eight snowstorm pictures about half-way down the page. Click on each small thumbnail to see the large version.http://normanprice.com/_wsn/page2.html
