Letter to the Editor
September 16, 2020
Dear friends and neighbors,
I have placed an ad in the Mountaineer promoting what I have called an “America Rally” in Big Sandy on Friday evening, September 18th. Let me explain my rationale.
First, the public health restrictions imposed by the pandemic has caused our usual civic and patriotic gatherings to be canceled. Memorial Day observances were canceled. July 4th observances were more private and quiet. The fall Chile Feed event was called off by the fire department. Many of us are just itching to get together with neighbors, observing safe public health protocols as we do so.
