My search about the Glewwe, Brossoit,and related families, the traditions, stories and locations, especially South St. Paul, MN, and what makes this "A Place We Call Home".

The first day of summer!
When the season turns to summer, South St Paul turns to its city festival, Kaposia Days. Our families have been involved in Kaposia Days since its inception 35 years ago and the Fourth of July Celebration for years before that. But for this entry we look back to the Centennial year of 1987 when four-year-old Annie Goossens won 1st place in the Kids Parade with her "Little House On the Prairie" look.
The following year Rae Marie and I marched all of the kids out in their dancewear and costumed finery but the winner was a kid in sheep's clothing (Little Bo Peep's sidekick) belonging to Bonnie, (our long ago nanny, but that's another story for another day.)
