A tribute to Tonganoxie St. Patrick's Parade founder John Lyman McCaffrey is painted at Fourth and Bury streets with the initials "JM." McCaffrey, who also was a longtime youth baseball coach in Tonganoxie, died in 2002.
Shovel your driveway and paths, check neighbors’ driveways and then grab all your closest little ones and find the biggest sledding hill. Snowmen also are a must. Snow days are a great time to catch up on missed shows and much-needed rest. I love snowdays, they haven’t changed one bit even as an adult, although I am sure not all working adults can say that, but I am happy I can. I was excited to see the snowmen and other snow sculptures throughout the Lawrence and Kansas City metro areas.
