Letter to the Editor
To the editor:
What a wonderful, caring community we live in. After many years of being a part of the holiday light parade, what an honor it was to be asked to be the Grand Marshals of this year's annual holiday event. We are so fortunate to live in a community where the merchants, businesses and individuals all work together for the benefit of the community.
We would like to thank everyone that made Sunday night's parade a delightful happening; Baldwin City Recreation Commission, especially Katie Skinner, the merchants, businesses, and the Baldwin Community Arts Council for keeping their doors open and offering hot cider and chocolate to warm those who braved the cold to watch the efforts of those who put in hours of planning, building and manning the parade entries.
Thank you for the ride in a beautiful, warm automobile (and we didn't have to worry about keeping the lights lit) and for the wonderful gift box, but most of all for the honor of being recognized for contributing to the community we love. We say thank you and God bless our community.
Diane and Jim Niehoff
