Thank you Shirley and Pat Rossi for making this community so special for the kids, youth and parents for an amazing 51 years! It took them eight full days of work every year, motivated with love of their community and children, to set up their amazing Halloween yard and house, plus baking goodies to hand out as well.
I stopped by last night and went inside to get the best candy apple I have ever tasted and I felt there was some sadness in their souls … how could there not be, most of us can’t imagine doing something for their community for 51 years, watching all the children come through the doors and then grow into parents and bring their children. What they must have seen, that only they can share.
Pat and Shirley, I applaud you for your generosity to us and for making this community the cool place it is to live, instilling a sense of pride where we live. I hope that never ends.
Your creative home and hard work will be carried in many childhood memories for many years to come. The community will truly miss it!
Thank you from all of us.
