Letters to the Editor

Lavender remains strong

In response to Mr. John Jones’ letter of July 30 (“The end of lavender?” Letters to the Editor, Sequim Gazette, page A-10), I have what I consider some salient points.

Signs were posted everywhere regarding the citywide shuttle bus … it was well advertised. Our farm, Purple Haze, had a shuttle bus running every 30 minutes from our farm from Carrie Blake Park. It for the most part was FULL on all the trips.

The hayride was NOT cancelled as Mr. Jones seems to think and ran smoothly all weekend.

At our farm it was our largest Friday ever and was standing room only on Saturday. That’s after 19 years running.

Mr. Jones might want to search on the Internet the comments from the weekend. He will find that not only did folks enjoy themselves but mentioned in force that they considered this weekend one of the best ever … I know that in my 19 years at Purple Haze it was right up there as one of the most amazing weekends I’ve ever witnessed!
