Local resident impressed with another Battle Days

October 20, 2013

Dear Editor,

I would like to applaud the efforts of the Battle Days Memorial Committee for a wonderful weekend of educational fun and history for the citizens of Point Pleasant.

I have been a resident of the city for many years now, and I have been to Battle Days many times. I am so amazed at the planning that went into the celebration and memorial of the battle and the new and different ways the event was portrayed to the general public. The committee took an old story, and told it in a new and different way that was so fresh and new.

The “Theater in the Round” was a great experience, and I hope they do it again next year. I also wanted to express my appreciation to the committee for donating all the straw bales they purchased to use for the celebration to our local animal shelter. Not only did they give to the public this weekend a wealth of knowledge and entertainment, they will also continue to give back to the community by helping our shelter care for our furry friends who cannot take care of themselves.

Wonderful people! Wonderful community service, and I, for one, thank you!

Cathy Neville,
