Oops.Some left out of Winter Carnival thank you letter

Oops. I omitted some very important people in my Winter Carnival Thank You letter last week (must be mental-pause). How could I omit Doris and Egon Braun?! Doris pounds the streets to sign up the King/Queen candidates and tracks their progress. And I want to tell you how tough it is to stop by all those establishments every few days to collect their earnings. Wes House allowed us to use his sleigh in the parade for the candidates to ride in. This year, he and Nick had to make a hasty change from skis to wheels on the sleigh. Great job. Egon helped decorate and was in charge of driving the royalty through the crowds.

I also got the name of the ice cream store wrong. It was Grand Lake Chocolates that donated all those cones to the kids. Thank you.

On a side note, my volunteers put in hundreds of hours to make this one day so much fun. I hear it was a great day for most of the vendors in town. This event is getting more notoriety every year. I hope you all will remember this next year and participate wherever possible – it just makes it more fun for all.

Thanks again.
