To the Editor:

Another Great American Weekend has come and passed, and once again it surpassed expectations. The weather was perfect, the crowds were large, the programming was fantastic, and the community came out in support.

On behalf of the village board I would like to thank everyone who helped make GAW as great as it was. Specifically, thank you to the Chamber of Commerce and the Great American Weekend Committee, who plan for a full year to make the event successful. Thank you to the village police and department of public works for making our village equally beautiful and safe for the event. Thank you to the various local service organizations and charities who volunteer countless hours to make our community a better place. The races were exciting as always and the food was fantastic. This weekend was what Goshen is all about and I want to thank each and every person who came to support the event in some way or shape.

I've said it in the past but it's worth repeating: Goshen is a special place and such a wonderful community to be a part of. GAW symbolizes all the best that we have to offer. Enjoy the rest of your summer — and don't forget to shop local.

Kyle Roddey
Mayor, Village of Goshen
