To The Daily Sun,

On April 1, Armand Bolduc, one of the chief Christmas Village "elves" passed away, leaving the other chief "elf," me, to continue.

On November 6 I had surgery that would not allow me to produce Christmas Village this year, as hoped.

Without any hesitation, Bob Hamel  took hold of the project and the village was built by Bob and other volunteers. We now have a younger crew growing up in the village, as well as Parks & Rec employees and members of the Wolves hockey team to assure the continuance of the village for years to come. I want to thank everyone who helped in any way.

Again, thanks to Bob Hamel and the other volunteers for stepping up for the community.
