Letters to the Editor

Park District offers thanks

To the Editor:

The Sandwich Park District staff and commissioners want to thank all the participants who took part in the 35th annual Freedom Run.  Over 100 runners/walkers took to the course and conquered it on a beautiful, warm summer morning, starting from Knights Park.

Before the road race began, the little ones took on the Trot Tot course and took home some great prizes. Special thank you to Sandwich Mayor Rick Olson for starting the races.

We also want to extend a special thanks to the following sponsors and volunteers: Sandwich Police Department and Street Department, Sandwich Emergency Management Services, Northwestern Medicine (Valley West Hospital), Just In Time Heating and Cooling, Angie’s Sugar Buzz Bakery, Water Wagon of Plano and NorthernRehab.  Special thanks to all the volunteers and park district commissioners who helped execute the race for all to have an enjoyable event.

Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you at next year’s Freedom Run!

Garland King
