Letter to the editor

I want to send a big ‘Thank You’ to those who put on the Industry Appreciation Day last Saturday. You did good! What a treat it is, especially for those with limited income, to enjoy so much good food ... free!

The burgers were delicious, the BBQ pork wonderful and the BBQ fresh salmon was a real treat. I didn’t have room for a hot dog, but they looked tasty, too. And then there was the chili, the cookies and cupcakes and soft drinks. It’s hard to decide which was the best. I took half my burger and the BBQ pork home and had it for dinner ... so I got out of cooking all day!

The live music was good, and many kids got a brand new bike. It was really a fun day and was even more enjoyable because there were fewer dogs attending, this year. I only saw two. Thank you for leaving your pets at home.

None of my ‘outside’ friends can believe we have such an event, with so much free food. It’s really nice to not have to take your wallet out at every booth. To all those who worked to put this fun day together, thanks so much for a wonderful feast.
