Thirteen plus years in the making, but worth the wait. One of those “crowning moments” in my life. CORNELIA (aka a replica of a 1906 Cretors No. 2 Sidewalk Popcorn Wagon) finally popped away, and for a good cause. I did not want to “sell popcorn” but wanted to give it away for a donation to the two local food shelves – The Fall Mountain Food Shelf, and Our Place Drop-In Center. These two organizations have received our A CHRISTMAS CAROL audiences donations the past six years — now over $20,000. And, this evening (thank you Walpoleans) CORNELIA received a tad over $300 in donations for these worthy causes for almost 300 servings of popcorn. I brought my stool along to sit down – and never was able to sit once. What can I say further?
The rest of this weekend I will be in front of my home, with AS IT WAS…AND STILL IS – WALPOLE, NEW HAMPSHIRE — my new book for sale. And CORNELIA will be there too, ready to accept your donations for more tasty popcorn.
So, here are some images and a video from this evening.
Guess who this is – complete with outfit I have had for over 30 years.
FIREWORKS – away – yes “downtown” Walpole
Goodnight, Walpole — See you tomorrow.
And, a video, complete with music.
