Algonquin Marches In 51st Founders' Parade

Founders' Honoree Jerry Glogowski usually hoofs the parade but said riding was nice for a change.
Tootsie Pops held up the heat best Saturday. Taffy didn't and let's not even talk about what happened to chocolate bars.
Even with wall-to-wall people, Public Works cleanup crews said spectators were remarkably conscientious this year about using trash containers.
