Readers say thanks

We would like to extend a word of thanks to the many volunteers who helped us make this last Fourth of July Freedom Celebration a huge success. If we were to start naming everyone, we’re sure we would leave someone out, so to be on the safe side we’ll just say thanks to all those that helped with set up, tear down and chaperoning the games. A fun time was had by all.

Thank you to Cub Scout Pack 221 for raising the flags at the opening ceremony. You young lads did a very fine job. Thank you to the Garden School for supplying food and soft drinks throughout the day and into the evening. The burgers were good, and the root beer floats were yummy!

Thank you to all of the performers, The New Hope Praise Band, The Western Slope Stompers and The Franz Family. Great job!

Thank you to the West Care Ambulance Service for showing up in the early evening and supplying the crowd with your light ropes. We had pink, blue, green and yellow rings lighting up the crowd during the fireworks show. They really looked pretty from the back of the crowd.

And last but not least, we would like to extend a very special thank you to the Burning Mountains Volunteer Fire Protection District. You guys are the best. You received almost more cheers after putting out the little fires, than the fireworks did themselves!

You are very much appreciated, and thank you for taking the time to make this event safe for all.

We are looking forward to next year’s event and we hope you will join us once again. One more thank-you to all of you, and God bless you all.
