Letter to the editor: Thanks to Blueberry Festival volunteers

2 mins read

The Blueberry Festival “2008” was a great success this year. This can only happen with the help of Firefighters, Highway Dept, Rec Dept, police, medics, civic groups, businesses, newspapers, crafters, vendors, churches, Nichols Expo, volunteers and finally, least of all, Mother Nature (LOL). Special thanks to all above and those of you who just step in to help where needed.

We would like to thank Kora Temple units for coming to entertain the public. They will be back in 2009. Special thanks Friends of Wilson Lake for giving over 250 boat rides, the fun race and 10K staff for the races, Farmington Emblem Club #460, entertainment and everyone that was in the three wonderful parades, and the people make the festival a success.

We had many local, out of town and state visitors. people were at the fireworks on Saturday night. The start went much faster because of the weather. The Pyro-tects need to test the fireworks because of the smoke and wind effect which is a safety issue to the spectators. Then we were off.

I would like to thank all the firefighters and EMS Departments in the state for their support in sending someone to go in our parade. What a sight to see the teamwork that was done to make this happen.

If anyone would like to donate for the Aug. 7 & 8, 2009 celebration it is never too early or late. The theme will be Wilton is a great place to “Live-Work-Play.” Again I would like to thank everyone for their participation. No job goes unnoticed.

The person who had #74 in the parade please contact Shannon 778-4726.
