Many thanks to John and Mark Boggs, Leah (Pearson) Kelton, and Connie Herges for providing our best ever Gateway to the Northland parade unit on June 18. The theme was Hollywood Movies, and who better to represent the historical society but our home grown movie star Belle Bennett? John provided the car, driven by Mark, Connie Herges recreated Belle’s Hollywood Blvd star, and Leah Kelton portrayed Belle herself.
