Thanks for supporting event

To the Editor,

This letter is not to complain or to criticize what is happening in the world today. It is a letter to say thank you.

The Peach Festival Committee of St. Thomas Episcopal Church on Three Springs Drive in Weirton is sending out a great big thank you to the residents of Weirton and the surrounding area who supported us by patronizing our 57th-annual Peach Festival. You have proven, not only to us, but to the general public that you support your community events especially during this trying time when we are all “fighting” COVID-19.

We are also sending a big thank you to the Brooke County Health Department for its advice during the planning period, to those who made any type of donations and to friends and relatives of parishioners who helped peel peaches, bake pies and prepare the food, to those who ordered take-out food, and to those who volunteered to help the day of the festival. Hopefully I am not forgetting anyone, but all who helped in any way are greatly appreciated.

I know of no other way to end this letter than to say thank you, thank you to all who helped.
