MollyOckett float awards
To the Editor:
What an insult to my son, his friends and all of our families.
As far as we are concerned, we came in first. We were told that in front of the whole town and given a nice check instead of a trophy.
Now they say we did not have first place. Instead of being tied for first place, we are second.
Our family has spent a lot of time and money through many years to make a float for the parade. Why? Because we have always enjoyed it.
If we had been second, fine, but, you all gave us first place and you cannot take that back.
(Ed. note: Because of a paperwork mix-up, first place was erroneously announced on the Common as the Bailey float, according to the Bethel Area Chamber of Commerce. The parade judges had actually chosen The Eddy school float for first.)
