An evening out

Dear Editor:I just returned from a fantastic evening at the Taste of Downey. I went expecting a few food vendors and not much of a crowd...not much of anything. Poke me in the eye and call me Shirley, for the second time in my life, I was so wrong! Children were frolicking on the grass, giggling with pure pleasure as their parents collected the wonderful yogurt, pastries, fruit and organic juices for their enjoyment. The big band music provided (Frank Sinatra tunes) was pure listening pleasure. Everyone was in a festive mood, eating our way around all the wonderful mixture of food vendors. Lines were short and the service was friendly. Anything you wanted, just hand them your card and enjoy. Very well organized. Whoever came up with this and put in the work, give 'em a kiss for me. I loved it and can't wait for the next one. -- Shirley Johnson, Downey
