How good it is to live in a small, caring community like our Bristol

To The Daily Sun,

With the Christmas season drawing to a close, the Bristol Downtown Decorating Committee sends thanks to all who helped make the downtown a special place to visit during the Christmas season.

Special thanks go out to Wally Orvis for the donation of this year's tree from his Christmas tree farm located on the Old Bristol Road. His contribution was greatly appreciated. Also to be thanked is the Beno Corp. for its generous contribution given in thanks for our decorating of the fence in front of their property. White Mountain Smile Makers generously donated tree decorations and decorated a bench on the common. Thanks to them for their support. Thank you also to everyone who donated empty milk jugs for our luminary project and to all those who helped light candles on our first Luminary Night.

As we clean up from the holidays we are reminded how good it is to live in a small community with caring people working together.
