Letter: The best Jubilee ever
Thank you. Through your kind and gracious coverage of the Guinea Jubilee, both in news, feature, advertising, and editorial, we were able to explain our heritage celebration and draw a crowd of over 10,000 folks who participated through two very hot days to make the Guinea Jubilee the best ever. I would also like to thank the other Gloucester media for covering the Jubilee: Radio station WXGM, for on-air live coverage and announcements preceding the event; Daily Press for blogging about it; and Glo-Quips for print coverage.
Thanks also to our Sheriff, Steve Gentry, who along with his Deputy Sheriffs made our Jubilee a safe place for parents to bring their children, helped folks that needed assistance, and made our roads safe during the parade.
Not last or least I send a hearty thanks to the sponsors of the Guinea Jubilee. Without your year-to-year support, our Jubilee would not survive. As this year’s parade grand marshal, Marvin Crane, put it, you "have Guinea in your hearts," too.
And a special thanks to a fantastic committee, you’re the best. Thank you for your time.
2010 Guinea Jubilee Chairman
