April 17 – A Grand Day in Norcross
And what a day it was!
It started early with the Corners to Crossing Race with volunteers taking their places by 6:30 AM. After the awards ceremony in Thrasher Park it was on to Webb Park for music and children’s activities “at the beach” during Spring Break in Norcross. Mayor Bucky said “we brought the beach to Norcross” for the day, even better than going to the beach. The new splash fountain was a big hit!
Then it was time to slip away for the official ribbon cutting at the Welcome Center before zipping back up to Webb Park to continue the fun. Volley ball playing, Frisbee throwing, dog romping, beach blanket lounging, bike riding, refreshment enjoying, sun worshiping, music playing day at the beach.
And it all ended with the Grand Opening and a nice ceremony honoring the namesake of the park, Mayor Emeritus Lillian Webb. Special guests were the members and families of the town’s baseball teams who played on that hallowed ground back in the day. Then live beach music rocked our world for a fine end to a grand day in Norcross.
Thanks to all the folks who made this happen. It was years in the making!
