Dear Editor:

What a beautiful day for the Veterans Day Ceremony: To come down Main Street and see the stars and stripes flying in the early morning sun; thanks, Parks.

No traffic noise on Main Street during the ceremony – that’s huge. Thanks to streets and the community safety officers for that.

How fitting to have Karen Woodard lay the wreath and to participate in the candle lighting; 10th Mountain Division lives on; thanks.

What meaningful words for both the invocation and benediction from Father Hilton; many thanks.

A thought-provoking and emotional reading from Tom Buesch, thank you.
