Thank you Borrego Springs! I will see you soon!!
I was honored to be invited to participate in the Borrego Springs Festival Parade as a VIP guest. It is an important occasion to be honored by the community as part of a key community event.
As I drove down the mountain from Alpine to Borrego Springs and began preparing for the event, my immediate thought was let's have some fun. Then I met the community members from all walks of life. I was humbled by the experience, people I met and the conversations I had. In this world; we do not always have to agree. At the same time finding common ground is about learning about each other to create an extended community.
As I participated in the parade preparations I met the members of the American Legion Color Guard, a pirate who is a college professor, an engineer who is a race car fanatic, motor cyclists who are military veterans, and so much more. There is so much to see and do in Borrego Springs Festival that you can spend an entire weekend eating steak dinners at the American Legion, playing golf, watching the parade, eating from the food trucks, listening to music from various bands, and simply relaxing as your children ride the rides in Christmas Tree Park!
I plan to visit Borrego Springs often. I will see you soon!!!
