Letter: Thanks to sponsors, participants, attendees

The Salem News

---- — To the editor:

For Beverly Homecoming’s 18th annual Lobster Boat Races held Aug. 3, many fishing vessels came out to play, most left winners, and all seemed to have a great time. This has been a great event, held year after year, and without the help of our sponsors and racers, it would not be possible.

We would also like to thank our sponsors for providing us with the wonderful prizes; the Anchor Pub and Grill of Beverly for catering festivities after the races; and all of the vessels and their families for coming out to participate and observe the event.

Sponsors: Beverly NAPA; Dawson’s True Value; Manchester Marine; Hawthorne Cove Marina; H&H Propeller; Ideal Transmission; Jubilee Yacht Club; Nautical Trader; Not Your Average Joe’s; Portside Marine; Riverdale Mills Corp.; Rowand Fisheries; Voyager Marine Electronics; Al’s Bait and Tackle; Britton’s Auto Parts; Rolls Battery; Little Italy; Friendship Trap Co.; and Sea Tow.

Thank you again, and we can’t wait to see you again next year.
