To the Valley News:
My family and I were most impressed with the festivities that surrounded the 4th of July celebration last week and we would just like to say "thank you" to the organizers for all that they did to make the celebration so much fun.
The fireworks display was such a wonderful start ... it may have been the longest fireworks display we've ever seen. It was terrific! And thanks go to all of those who organized the Firecracker Fun Run, the Kids Fun Run and the Old Fashioned Games in Beggs Park. We look forward to these events each year with much anticipation and appreciate the time volunteers take to make it happen. We love living in Essex because of family activities such as this. Thank you for all that you do!
Ken, Courtney, Charlotte and Oliver Hughes
