Letter to the Editor

Small, but Mighty!

Dear Editor,
As I reflect on the outstanding fireworks display on the Fourth of July, I began to realize how lucky Woonsocket residents are. Volunteers do outstanding jobs in this town and surrounding community with no pay and little thanks.
Our fire department not only comes to our fires and ambulance calls, they make our July Fourth so special. The Woonsocket Water Fesitval committee organizes a Fourth full of activities for all ages. Baseball and softball games have unsung heroes who referee, sub for the coach, run the concessions and alert everyone of the games. The Legion and Legion Auxiliary provide patriotic activities for many of the holidays, work at blood drives, etc. Community Club organizes rummage sale day, clean-up day, bought the Christmas display and Woony signs, etc.
If a member of the community dies, family, friends and church organizations provide food and comfort freely. The choirs and organist provide healing music.
The school parent group does so many projects, to encourage the students to learn, succeed and enjoy school. 4-H leaders and helpers volunteer their time to encourage our youth to succeed in so many ways.
I know I left some organizations out. I won’t list names because there are so many outstanding volunteers.
As other towns and cities worry about their youth, I see Woony students enjoying providing a delicious dinner for the community on the Fourth of July.
Woonsocket is small, but it is mighty because of the PEOPLE who give of themselves. Thank you!
Judy Brisbine
