I hope everyone had an opportunity to get out and enjoy the beautiful weather this past weekend. I have been traveling all around the district to attend fall festivals and have been in several parades. I will be in the Pecan Festival parade in Brunswick on Oct. 6 and in the Pumpkin Day parade in Glasgow on Oct. 27.
