Impressed resident

To the Fife and Drum Corps: I really enjoyed your presentation in the Williston Parade on July Fourth. Thank you so much for adding to our day. The music, costumes and presentation were wonderful.

Keep up the terrific work, and I hope you will be in the parade again next year!

Replace fireworks with food

I am all for celebrating the Fourth of July, but this year, due to the amount of people that are out of work and the demand on our local food shelves, I think the amount of money that our communities spend on the firework display should have gone to the local food shelves. There are many ways to celebrate the Fourth without fireworks. The amount of money spent for this year’s display could have put a lot of much needed food on the shelves.
