Here’s what Wilson had to say about the event:

“I've been friends with Frye Guy for a long time. And with all the success in his career, I've always known his heart has always wanted to be married and have a family. He had to go through a lot of frogs before he found his Princess in Bethany. And with their daughter Lucy, his greatest dream has come true. I was thrilled to watch his happiness come full circle at his wedding Saturday, surrounded by his family and friends.”

Clayton leaders praised the work of the Parks Advisory Board, noting that the group has achieved several of its goals the past few years.

Members of the Parks Advisory Commission first met in 2015 with a mission to make the parks of Clayton more welcoming and bring in more events than it had in past. The advisory group is made up Chairman Earl Harlamert, Co-Vice Chair Traci Barnes, Co-Vice Chair Helen Senu-Oke, Jakie McArdle, Lisa Menker and Robin Spiller.

In the years since, the Parks Advisory Commission has accomplished many projects, city leaders said. They have replaced the signs in and around the parks, improved the landscape with work on trees, sidewalks and flowers, and they have helped provide more community events.

Many popular events for the city include the Labor Day Fireworks, Breakfast with Santa, picnics with bounce houses for children, food, fun and games.

According to city officials at the last council meeting on Thursday, commission members went above and beyond the call of duty, aspiring to bring better service to the community.
