I love Crystal Frolics! And I was proud to participate in the parade this year. My family marched in the parade with me, as well as some of my supporters. Before the parade started, Keith Ellison came over to meet me. We had signs showing the 10-key values of The Green Party (Grassroots Democracy, Social and Economic Justice, Ecological Wisdom, Nonviolence, Decentralization, Community-Based Economics, Feminism and Gender Equality, Respect for Diversity, Personal and Global Responsibility, and Future Focus and Sustainability).
Keith saw us getting ready with all our 10-key value signs. He said we looked good and he supported the message we were projecting, so he had to come over and let us know and meet us. My family and I got a photo with him while he stopped by. It was nice to meet Keith that day and hear that he liked the Green Party 10-key values.
I enjoyed meeting many Crystal residents that day. I strongly support Crystal Frolics, as it is such a wonderful community building event! I am proud to live in a community with such a great summer festival! I have enjoyed going for years, and now I love to take my children there.
