On Saturday a car driving north on Stone ran off the road taking out the fire hydrant at the corner of Stone and Pennsylvania before plowing through one of my neighbor’s fences and into their backyard tree. According to the neighbor the driver and passenger were not seriously hurt.
I have spent many an evening walking around this park and calculate the distance to be ½ mile +/-.
It is a great way for area residents to exercise without having to join a local gym.
The Park is named after a local historian and is located just north of New York at the corner of Stone and Wisconsin Streets.
The park offers many other features for young and old including a butterfly park, shelter houses and a childrens playground area.
The Bill Dreggors Park is just one of many reasons why those who live in DeLand, love and treasure it so.

Happy New Year! Last night I welcomed the New Year with my granddaughters. To be honest my young ladies actually made it to 9pm. Just before bed the girls enjoyed chocolate cake and we went outside and lit sparklers for the girls to play with. Last night will be remembered as one of the best New Years eve celebrations I have enjoyed. Sounds of bottle rockets and firecrackers could be heard throughout the neighborhood as everyone excitedly anticipated the end of 2009 and the beginning of 2010.
Happy new Year DeLand!
I spent part of Saturday enjoying the DeLand chili cook-off. For $10 I was able to sample some of the best and worst chili this side of the St. Johns. I could not pick a winner from the dozen or so samples but did leave the event full. The chili cook-off is another reason DeLand is a great place to call home.
The DeLand high school homecoming parade will be on October 9th from 2 p.m. – 3 p.m. The parade will run from Plymouth to Euclid on Woodland Blvd.
This year I plan on attending the Volusia County Fair. The fairgrounds is in DeLand just east of the city. I checked on the dates for the fair this year and discovered the fair will be held on November 5th -15th.
Being from midwest attending the county fair was an every year event. Cotton candy, games, pinapple whip ice cream and harness racing were a big part of the fair I attended in my home town. I am looking for re-starting the tradition of attending a county fair.
