As long as it's not "permanent"


UPDATE: 10:00 AM I'll take his/her word for it:

It is a sukkah, a structure erected for the celebration of Sukkot, a Jewish holiday.

"Sukkot, a Hebrew word meaning "booths" or "huts", refers to the Jewish festival of giving thanks for the fall harvest, as well as the commemoration of the forty years of Jewish wandering in the desert after Sinai."

Perhaps it is part of the town's harvest/farm festival happening down town tomorrow.

So the Kendrick Park study committee came back with their Final Report a while back and concluded that no "permanent structures" (like the sani-can, outhouse, "comfort station") the Town Mangler had in mind should be erected on the donated pristine public park.

And--talk about double diss--they also mentioned how it would be just fine for the Boy Scouts to sell Christmas trees--as they have done for over fifty years--on the cite (presumable without the $1 tax per tree imposed by Mr. Shaffer.)

So I'm not sure what the this is...stay tuned.

Sherri and I will be stopping by to purchase our Christmas Tree from the scouts as we always do. Wonder what's behind door number one?

Why didn't you call public works to find out?

I like the sukkot. kendrick Park would also be a great place for a Nativity scene.
