Letters to the Editor
The letter to the editor, “Lavender Weekend disappoints from years past” by Rick McUne of Cashmere, Wash., (“Letters to the Editor,” Sequim Gazette, July 23, page A-11), was right on the money.

Our community and expressly myself need to have SARC in our lives. As recipient of three prostheses, SARC’s facility, and expressly its pool, is vital to my mobility.
