Volunteer Daniella from Europe gives a her best smile for the moment

On one occasion, Mayor Meacham and a volunteer were discussing how the different events are planned and delivered to the public while I was present. The mayor said, "we learn as we go, and we talk about what we did last year, what worked and what didn't and make the necessary adjustments."

Cultural Events such as fishing tournaments are not always about catching the biggest, heaviest fish and the winner. People are the central focus and core of culture. So these photos are more about observing the people, what they do, how they do it and with whom they do it.
Friends of the mayors ask me to tell the mayor they are in town.
Town Commissioner Clark, Volunteer Daniella, Mayor Meacham and Fire Dept Volunteer (left) prepare a feast for the contestants and residents to raise funds for the event, to pay for t-shirts, advertising etc. and usually they never make a profit.
The Mayor and Fire Dept work very closely to make all events happen.

One of the Fishing Guides, Captain Ponytail said, "Striped Bass fishing this year is crazy, the big ones are just nowhere to be found." "I've never seen it like this before."
