MENIFEE MAAM

WHAT IS THE SOUND OF FREEDOM? -

BSC, CA – Menifee, CA is one of the last of the new area cities to come online. Each city has its own own personality and Menifee is no exception.


Made up of ex-Murrietans/Temeculians, and new blood, Menifee has surpassed Hemet as a rising star in the triple crown of southwest Riverside County newness and hipness. The latest administration having moved past their Hollywood Hiccup one mann down and a soiled city manager less, has been getting educated about glyphosate from empowered Mom and No GMO activist, Lisa of Menifee.

Realizing that your local city council is your first line of defense against an out-of-control Sacramento, Lisa got the Round Up spraying ended behind her land in Menifee through attending meetings and speaking up. An old man once said, “There are 3 kinds of people. Those in the parade, those watchingthe parade, and those saying, “What parade?”

Thanks to one mom, Menifee has joined the parade to protect their future - the children and the bees!!

To round out her round up message, Lisa invited The Two Amigos, John and moi, to this year's
parade.
l-r adults, John, Lisa, Christine and Mike

Ex-Prop NoOn64 activist Brad and ye old reporter
The parade started a little after 5PM in the usual fashion



And then followed the usual types of subjects, with two exceptions for personality.



























It was these two entries that had the tinge of hijacking Temecula's Christmas Parade to announce the return of The Vault [Ivan Promotions, who else?] and Britt, Iowa's Hobo Fest. The first entry was of course, one close to home, and my ride home.

Christine, food activist, looking at camera

Brad, cannabis activist/patient, looking at camera
John, food activist holding sign; Lisa, empowered Mom, with blue sign


Here's the other entry that got everyone to their feet, and not just for the candy.


Presenting, The West Coast Westsiders. They weren't the Rockettes but they rocked it like they were.












The WCW snapped, crackled, dropped, and popped. But no lock, this parade was to a solid drum beat.
















At the other end of the spectrum were the Twirlers, who say 'square dancing is friendship set to music'.






There were other entries to be sure...






But that's it for the BSC crew covering the MAAM entry in the Menifee.


Now it was time for the after parade din-din celebration, in Riverside, no less.
