To the editor:

Great things are happening because there is involvement by the entire community. The First City Film Festival brought people downtown who stated, “We never knew that this shop and others were here.” Numerous people from outside of the city showed up at Haven’s Memorial Park to race the 10K/5K Trail Mob off-road running race.

Who do we thank? We thank the residents of this town. Their passions have brought attention to this city. These residents come from all walks of life – local firemen, local police officers, office managers, etc. One thing that was also great was the number of out of town people who were here. Main Street’s ideas and support are really getting Leavenworth a great reputation. Keep it up.
