Dedication seen at Action Fest

Sandi and I took in a lot of the Action Fest this past weekend after a 20-year absence.

Dear Editor:

Sandi and I took in a lot of the Action Fest this past weekend after a 20-year absence.

We had a great time reuniting with old friends and enjoying the various activities that were going on in the park and around town.

The level of participation by people of every age was really something to see.

What impressed us the most is the continued dedication of the municipal staff who work so hard to make it happen and the volunteers who continue to support this great event year after year.

Action Fest has really remained true to its roots. Congratulations.

Just a few years away from retirement and we can hardly wait to start making this an annual event again.

Bob and Sandi Vincent
