If you are at the park on Saturday, you will notice that the flags are at Half Staff. This is in honor of Dana Bruce, seasonal maintenance worker at Blue Ridge Parkway, a National Park unit in North Carolina. His mower fell 140 ft down an embankment. Curiously, all mowing operations have been suspended throughout the NPS pending an investigation.
If you like horses or just the pomp and ceremony of awards, the Yosemite Mounted Patrol School Graduation Ceremony will be held this Friday at the Ahwahnee Horse Training Grounds at 10 am.
Unrelated thought worth quoting: “Good morning Campers! I’m your Uncle Ernie and I’ll welcome you to Tommy’s Holiday Camp. The camp with the difference, never mind the weather. When you come to Tommy’s, the holiday’s forever.” – The Who
