To the Valley News:
This is a letter of thanks, a small token of our deep gratitude. On Friday, Jan. 11, approximately 80 people from the North Country, from Plattsburgh, Peru, Willsboro, Essex, Westport, Wadhams, Elizabethtown, Moriah and Schroon Lake, made the trek to Middlebury College in Middlebury, Vermont to watch our two children play basketball at the collegiate level. Bolster and Willa McKinley, both freshmen, play for the Connecticut College Camels, of New London, Connecticut and on Friday, their teams played Middlebury. This unbelievable North Country turn-out swelled our hearts and filled us with love and pride. Not only that, but the McKinley fans went wild at half-time in a very special display of enthusiasm… that may well have gotten Willa a few more minutes! We hope to thank each person individually, but in the meantime, we want to say thank you to those many supporters!
Peggy Bolster and Hokey McKinley
