Today I send my deepest appreciation for 2 people who hold a very special place in all our hearts: Erin Cochran and Dora Manley.

These two ladies have demonstrated over and over again their love of our community and their dedication to a better quality of life for us all. I cannot count the volunteer hours they have put in over the years – and neither can they because for them, it is not about what they have done, it is about what they stand for.

Because of Erin, we have Fireworks this year.

Because of Dora, we are celebrating and having fun together, as one community.

From the bottom of my heart, I appreciate your gifts, talents and generosity.

~ Mayor Richard Anderson
