Dear Editor,
The photo of the kids in Crossman Park in the April 20th edition of The Citizen was awesome. Those kids were having fun and Patrick McAbee captured it all. Great job.
Also the pictures of the crocus and the daffodils were just what we needed after the endless rain.
Thank you,
Sharon Gibbons
