The folks in Marion deserve praise for putting on such an outstanding Chingawassa Days this year, despite concern that rainy weather might cause more than just Friday night’s activities to be moved indoors.
Even on that night, what fun it was to have six Elvis tribute artists travel in from both coasts and several states in between to compete in a qualifying contest for the Ultimate Elvis competition this August in Graceland. Their presence was a tribute not just to the King himself, but to the Marion community for its efforts in getting them there.
For that and the rest of the weekend fun, we say to Marion: Thank you. Thank you very much. —LC
