To the Editor:
It was a perfect summer evening Friday, June 14.
It was warm; the sky was filled with puffy white clouds. Kids were playing in the green grass, laughing and running joyfully. Neighbors were chatting, renewing old relationships and forging new ones. A band played in a gazebo. Everyone was enjoying the free hot dogs and cotton candy.
No, this wasn't in a movie -- it was at Ridgewood Park in Blendon Township. It was the first of the summer Concert in the Park series and, as hundreds of people will tell you, it was great!
Thanks to HRAA for all their work, and a special thank you to the Township Trustees Stew Flaherty, Jan Heichel and Jim Welch for their efforts in rebuilding our community. They are truly transforming Blendon Township.
