A young man's fancy ...

Spring! A young man’s fancy … salute to the season.

Philip will celebrate spring right where it all happened one hundred years ago. It will be a big party, drawing together the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of area homesteaders and early pioneers to a place they can call home. For many, it will mean traveling back from where life has taken them.

Spring is a time when a young man's (and lady's too) fancy can throw caution to the wind.

Thankfully, Philip is not a hotbed for serious crime, but while having fun, it may be a good idea to keep your eyes open and your mind engaged. The event will draw many people who won't be there just to celebrate history.

Local authorities will be beefing up the law enforcement presence just in case. There will be many hugs, but just keep on your toes, and your wallet in a front pocket.
