I thought you might enjoy this note on a beautiful Friday afternoon in Parkville. I received this message today from an old friend from college. This friend used to work for the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) and has done community development work all over the country. His comments gave me a burst of pride that I get to be part of the team in Parkville:

``Lauren, A few weeks ago, my family and I visited Mom and Dad in Carrollton. In order to align our drive to KCI with naptime for the three kiddos, we decided to stop in Parkville and let the kids play prior to the flight. What a good decision. The park near the river was delightful. A real jewel. Kids loved it and we got some good pics. People (and a kind Parkville police officer who was patient as my brood crossed the street in a zig zag pattern) were great--the best of Midwestern goodness. And I enjoyed a quick drive thru the college, downtown, and a few neighborhoods. Your city is doing something right. Glad that I know the manager.

Have a great weekend,
