Letter: Thank you for fire response

To the editor:

The extended Hammond family wishes to thank the Hamilton and Wenham fire departments, police department and Beauport Ambulance services for their extraordinary efforts at the recent fire on Bridge Street. We are also grateful for our wonderful neighbors and extended community members.

Having lived in town for more than 48 years, we expect to stay at that site for many years to come. We would also like to thank everyone who sent letters, emails and words of comfort for our family.

Fred Hammond
