TO THE EDITOR: On behalf of the Catholic Community of Holy Name and St. Matthew’s and the Holy Name School family, I thank all those who were involved in making this year’s Labor Day celebration a huge success.
God blessed us with beautiful sunshine, warm temperatures and visits with friends new and old, to fill our Labor Day holiday.
A big thank you to the organizing committee members for the many hours. Thanks to the many people who donated prizes or supplies; to those who prepared the program booklet, our advertisers and those who organized and marched in the parade; to the workers who spent days setting up and preparing food for the hungry crowds; to those who came out to spend your Labor Day holiday with us and enjoy the activities.
Thank you to Grand Marshal Bishop Terry LaValley, the Norwood Brass Firemen, the Beer Run Association, Sue and her team for the delightful Ken-Ducky-Derby, Fred and his helpers who organized the second-annual Holy Name Car Show, to everyone who worked in the booths and to the cleanup crew, you are a godsend.
To the members of the Lewis County Sheriff’s Department and the New York State Police, who provided traffic control for the parade, it was a pleasure to have you with us.
The Labor Day celebration was a great success because God has blessed us with great people in AuSable Forks, Black Brook and Jay and wonderful friends who come from near and far to support Holy Name School, a gift from God to our community.
May God continue to bless the good work he has started in all of you, and may our school continue for many years to be a place where tomorrow’s leaders learn morals and virtues today.
