Do you want to build a float? | Sumner Mayor Update

  • Today at 1:00PM

We didn't realize that in addition to the float, we were also getting giant daffodils, a mountain, a carousel, a piano, Santa's toy bag, a few reindeer, and enough chicken wire to satisfy Colonel Sanders! I always knew that our Public Works Shops Crews were amazing, but now I know that they literally have moved mountains.
