 THANK YOU NOTES, COMMENDATIONS & CONGRATULATIONS:

THANK YOU. A great big THANK YOU to everyone who turned out for the Town Hall Monday night! I was really impressed with the crowd.

You all made a nice dent in the yard signs I have. If anyone else would like one, just let me know. We deliver! ~ Mike Smith,

THANK YOU! Wow, what a well organized and fun event. Kudos to all the hard working crew.  The plans were wonderful and the day was delightful.  So glad you left the timeline pictures up so they can still be viewed along the downstairs hallway!  Anyone who is seeing them for the first time needs a local who will recognize children in the photos!!  Thanks to all of you! ~ Nell Melzer
