BROOKSIDE PLAZA DEDICATED AS “LEON GOODHART WAY”

Long-time Brookside business and property owner Leon Goodhart was honored March 22 at a brief ceremony where Brookside Plaza was be renamed “Leon Goodhart Way.” Goodhart had been a Brookside businessman since 1949, when he came to the United States from Poland to work for his great uncle, Jacob Hyman, at the Country Club Shoe Store. Goodhart went on to take over the business, and operated it until his retirement in the late 1990s. In addition, Goodhart owned and managed much of the property along Brookside Plaza, including the Brookside Plaza office building. He was a past president of the Brookside Business Association and a board member of the Brookside Community Improvement District. Goodhart passed away in June 2012.

Appreciation for the St. Pat's Warm-Up Parade

Enjoy this letter from a grateful parade participant:
"I wanted to tell you what this parade means to us. We are the people with the buggy pulled by a lawn mower. My husband Richard Price restored the buggy himself years ago and gave the buggy to our son Grady Price when we moved from our farm in Oklahoma to town. Each year we drive 400 miles round trip from Oklahoma to see him in the parade....some years we ride in the buggy but we are getting too old to get in it. (We sold our buggy horse when we moved to town so Grady's brother adapted the buggy to be pulled by a lawn mower.) Grady wanted to honor our Irish heritage as well as proudly use his father's buggy in a parade and Grady lives in Brookside which was a perfect match. We love this parade and hope to see Grady and his family and friends in it for years.......Richard and Karyl Price of Grove, OK. (It makes us so happy that he wants to do this every year.)

And The Winners Are.........

Congratulations to the Winners of the Brookside St. Patrick's Day Warm-Up Parade contests. Phillips "66" Service won the award for the Best Overall with a float that brilliantly displayed the theme of "Lucky 13." Complete with a salt shaker, snake-eyes die, a ladder and more displays of "luck" both good and bad. The Drill Team from Benjamin Banneker won for the Best Dance Team. The crowd delighted in their amazing talent and in sync movements as they marched through the crowds. The St. Andrews Episcopal Church won the award for Best Music. The heart stopping, very moving bagpipe melody rang through out Brookside as the bagpipers in their traditional dress uniforms delighted the crowds with music that made the day all the more special! The Honorable Mention was awarded to 5B Candle Makers for their outstanding Anniversary Float depicting ten wonderful years in the Brookside area.
