Last Saturday when I picked up the mail, I got a wonderful surprise. I received a letter from the Cromwell City Council. Enclosed were a letter and Certificate of Appreciation thanking me for my many years of writing the area news. This was a total surprise and I want to thank the City Council for this honor. I have often said that if I quit writing the news column, no one will know what's going on in the community. I really like doing this column and am thankful for the compliments I get. We live in a great community and we need to appreciate everyone in it! Thanks again!
