Saint Cloud Centennial Celebration brings back fond memories.

None of us could have predicted what 2020 would look like.  But the truth is, we have no idea what tomorrow will look like.  Some people are planners.  They prefer everything to unfold accordingly to their perfect plan.  This isn't me and this isn't real life.

I let go of what I thought my life should be, resulting in blessings far better than my original plan.

This year, I'm working on personal projects that wouldn't come into fruition if it weren't for our unforeseen circumstances.  And for that, I'm forever grateful.

Unfortunately, the Saint Cloud Firemen's Picnic and parade didn't happen this year.

So, let's cherish the memories from the centennial celebration held in 2009.

I took these photographs during the parade which is held just steps from my parent's front door.  This small town holds a special place in my heart.  There's nothing like growing up in small-town Wisconsin.  It feels like a safe place where you trust your neighbors, let your children ride their bikes around the village and everyone looks out for each other.  It feels nostalgic.

As an artist photographer for Studio L, I'm a storyteller.  I'm intrigued with people's stories and relish in the opportunity to tell them.

Share this with family and friends because they probably know someone captured in these photographs.

Each week I will share community events that brought us together in the past and will certainly bring us together in the future.  These are the stories I was born to tell.  I hope they make you smile.
