Letter: A Ward 2 July 4 thank-you

The Salem News

---- — To the editor:

The Peabody Ward 2 Fourth of July celebration was a huge success at the Welch School. A “Patriot Parade” formed at the end of Blaney Avenue and marched to the Welch School, where trophies were awarded. Arts and crafts, games and races for ages 3 and up then took place. Snacks, lunch and raffles followed. A great thanks go to all those who attended and to the volunteers who helped run the event.

A special thank-you goes to the following sponsors for their generous contributions: Gordon Realty, the Wardhurst Restaurant, D’orsi’s Bakery, the Land and Sea Restaurant, Conway Cahill-Brodeur Funeral Home, Tom Gould of Treadwell’s Ice Cream, and Neatco Sports.

Arthur Athas,

Ward 2 City Councilor, Peabody
