Letter to the Editor | Senior tent offered wonderful service

As I made plans for attending the 4th of July parade, I decided to inquire about the senior tent.

My parents were interested in finding a place that would be shaded, and I had heard about this service. I made a phone call to the hotline number provided by the 4th of July website, where I was able to get all of the information I needed. The person I spoke with was so helpful.

My parents and I did sit in the tent for the parade and I was very impressed. The volunteers were so kind and helpful. There were chairs, snacks and water for all who sat there.

I found the person who had been so helpful on the phone and thanked her in person for the services that were being offered for the parade.

I have grown up in this town and have always been proud of the 4th of July events that are offered each year. The senior tent is a wonderful example of the hard work that goes into all aspects of the 4th of July celebration.
