To the editor:
I can not say thank you enough to each and every one of you that participated in some way this year.
The weather was a little chilly on Saturday, April 28. The sun started to shine in the afternoon and the rain held off. We couldn't have asked for a better day. Thank you Mother Nature. Everyone worked hard, and the turnout was tremendous.
As chairperson for Kid Connection, I could not have done it without everyone's help. I would like to send a great big thank you to this year's committee members. You are the strength, energy, and backbone of Kid Connection and without you, Kid Connection wouldn't have been such a success. You guys are what make Kid Connection what it is. To all my committee members, I salute you. Thank you for all your support and team work.
I can't begin to thank all the volunteers, the downtown businesses, and all the groups that participated this year and all the people that turned out to enjoy this year's Kid Connection. Kid Connection is a community event provided by the community and made possible by the community. Thank you for making Kid Connection happen year after year.
I would like to say thank you to John Pannizzo and the Downtown OIP & Grille for all their help with organizing the food and drinks for Kid Connection. You do so much for the community and me. I couldn't ask for a better friend. You are amazing. Thank you.
I would also like to say thank you to Association of Mifflin County Educators for sponsoring Shaver's Creek, B's Custom Screen-printing & Embroidery, Tuscarora Intermediate Unit No. 11 for sponsoring the Tumblebus, Kish Printing, Mifflin County Key Club, The (Lewistown) Sentinel, The County Observer, Zampelli Electronics, Len Peffer Dairy Products, Dave Frey and the Borough of Lewistown, Lumina Center, The Mifflin County School District, The Friends of the Embassy Theatre Inc., and the list goes on and on, I want to thank you all.
To everybody that makes Kid Connection such a great success year after year - thank you.
Without everyone's constant support of this yearly event, Kid Connection would not happen.
Thank you so much.
Hope to see you all again next year for Kid Connection. Thanks again.
