Letter to the Editor: Monett's Festival of Lights

Friday, January 11, 2013

Dear Editor:

I hope everyone had an opportunity to visit Monett's South Park and enjoy our awesome Festival of Lights. We had record attendance again this year.

The Festival of Lights would not be possible without the assistance of the City of Monett. Aaron Burdett, Electric Department foreman, and his crew do a great job installing the displays.

As has been previously published, thieves stole over 2,000 feet of wire from the displays one week before the scheduled opening. It looked like opening night would need to be delayed. But, the Electric Department went to work and dedicated themselves to getting the displays re-wired, ensuring the Festival of Lights opened on time. They were successful!

I offer a special thank you to the City of Monett Electric Department employees for a job well done. You are appreciated!

Sharon Garrett
