Letters to the editor — Sept. 12, 2018

Thanks for your assistance

I just want to take a moment and give a huge “thank you” to all of my amazing friends and community members who worked so hard on helping me set up the first Children’s Village at the fourth-annual Northwest Colonial Festival, held at our own George Washington Inn on Finn Hall Road in Agnew.

First, of course, is to Dan and Janet Abbott for the amazing venue! To my husband and son, who both helped me get stuff out there, to Jim Lidbeck for his amazing signs, Jeff Eshom for the amazing “hatchet” for the reading of the Cherry Tree, to the 20th Maine of the Washington Civil War Association for the Officers Tent to turn into “The Old North Church,” to Raydelle Kistler and Kathy Tucker who helped portray Betsy Ross, to Gwen McGivern who helped with colonial dresses, Bergen and Justin Teschner for the Festival Flags, and Matthew Davison who portrayed Paul Revere, and the list goes on and on!

My apologies to those I have forgotten to mention! My sincere and heartfelt thanks to all of you.

It was an amazing event, and if you missed out, I certainly hope to see you next year!

Not voting Democrat

In response to “Why vote for Republicans?” (Letters to the editor, Sequim Gazette, Sept. 5, page A-12):

The writer’s last sentence asks, “With all this in mind, why on earth would you ever vote for a Republican this upcoming November?”

My reply: Sir, I’m 87 and there is very little left that I can do for my country except make certain I never vote for another Democrat!
