Letter: A Small Town at Its Best

To the Editor:

Some say living in a small community stinks: Everyone knows everyone’s business. And to some extent you can’t argue that point. But living in a small community is wonderful when a tragedy strikes. On Oct. 26 and 27 we held a softball tournament in honor of Kolton Gunn, 8-months-old, who was taken from us too soon. The number of individuals who donated their time and showed their support was amazing!

I also need to thank many local companies and organizations that donated raffle items, food and monetary contributions. Nothing anyone can do or say can bring baby Kolton back, but the amount of support that the community displayed was wonderful. You may not know everyone in this small community but when a tragedy like this strikes, it brings out the best in people. Thank you to all who played in the frigid temperatures, everyone who worked the concessions, Bob Boudreau for volunteering his time to umpire, and Melissa and Steve Gunn for allowing us to do this in honor of Kolton.
