Highlights from 09/03/13 issue

Highlights from the Tuesday, Sept. 3, 2013
issue of The Grove Sun.

Front page focuses on the end of the summer season with GRDA, an upcoming city council meeting, and the breaking news: the death of former Jay resident, Boxer Tommy Morrison (of Rocky V fame.)

While the picture of Sam and Patti Williams, flying in the plane over Grand Lake for the Bobber Drop was cool, my favorite pic of the issue came as a fluke.

On Sunday morning, as I drove to church on Sunday, I saw members of the Grove Fire Department collecting money in their "boots" for MDA.

So, being late to church was worth getting this photo below. I was catching pics from different angles, and then, the flag caught my attention.

Politics aside related to Jerry Lewis and MDA, I thought it was a unique way to frame a "traditional" event - especially since this is a Labor Day tradition.

Saturday was busy in Grove, with Jana Jae's Fiddle Camp and the Fifth Annual Great Grand Bobber Drop.
The fiddle camp was fun - it's the third musical event Jana Jae has held in Grove this summer. I have a new appreciation for this style of music. 

Below are a few scenes from the weekend event. More appear online at www.grandlakenews.com in a photo galery. 
This picture, of three-year-old Madysen Weeks of Buffalo, Mo.,  was my second favorite photo of the issue. I loved the spunk of this wee-one, as she performed with her workshop group. She was the youngest performer (I believe) at the fiddle camp.

It was fun to capture scenes of the Fifth Annual Great Grand Bobber Drop - and also encourage readers to submit their favorite images from the event.

Just another day in the #lifeofaneditor.
