Letter: Grateful for Danvers Family Festival support

To the editor:

I want to personally express a heartfelt “Thanks” to the many hands that make the Danvers Family Festival possible: the dedicated board of directors, general members, generous corporate partners, multiple departments from the town of Danvers, civic organizations, local businesses, volunteers, supporters, and attendees and friends of Danvers Family Festival. It truly would be impossible to have such a wonderful festival without the support from all of you.

Although this is not my first year with Danvers Family Festival, I am still happily amazed to see a family enjoying the festival, whether just by sharing an ice cream, trying to catch the winning fish or watching the fireworks. I hope that you all had time to relax and enjoy one or more of this year’s 34 events. I know that the time and effort all the organizers put into this year’s events were greatly rewarded by seeing the smiles on the faces of those who attended.

Once again, I feel Danvers Family Festival and the hundreds of “helpers” outdid themselves for another successful festival. Enjoy the rest of the summer — you earned it.
