LETTERS: Wonderful tradition

Editor: Congratulations to the organizers and volunteers of the annual Christmas on the Peninsula


My congratulations to the organizers and volunteers of the annual Christmas on the Peninsula from the lively leading lady on downward (Christmas spirit, Nov. 29).

Attending this event was well worth a good part of my time.

Commendation should also be extended to the many churches and other establishments that opened their doors to host special features and in some cases provide complimentary snacks and coffee.

A note of recognition also belongs to one of your own staff writers who made “the scene” at a local coffee house and read that notorious Christmas story of Dr. Seuss. I stood nearby and listened eagerly to the entire script.

Lastly, an acknowledgment should be given to the mayor of our little city, who, during the closing ceremonies, was so lavish with his words of thanks to the leading organizer and all the staff and volunteers who made this event a success. I’m sure they appreciated it. It was also a touching moment when he had one of his grandsons help him light the official Christmas tree.

Thanks again, to all involved, for what has become a wonderful annual tradition here on the Peninsula.

Les Johnson, White Rock
