As a mother of four, a grandmother of eight, a great-grandmother of 11 and an elementary school teacher for 35 years, I would like to compliment the parents for raising such well-mannered and thoroughly delightful children who came to our door on Halloween. I handed out well over 100 treats and without exception the children were polite and fun to talk to.
I especially remember the little boy who asked, "May I please have a bottle of water instead of a treat?" Needless to say, he got both.
When I was in the checkout line at Walmart early this week, the woman in front of me was commenting on the politeness of the trick-or-treaters.
We certainly can be proud of our children and the parents who raised them.
Delta Volunteer Fire Department (DVFD) will be holding its annual fireworks show at Confluence Park on Wednesday, July 4, having received approval from Delta City Council at the council's June 5 meeting.
The DVFD has 28 volunteers and expects to have eight to 10 firefighters from Cedaredge join them this year.
