Letter: Blaze set up needs lots of volunteers

I am contacting you about the Blaze of Lights.

The committee from the last 15 years are no longer putting up the display, so it is sent back to the town.

I have been in contact with the mayor and set up dates are Saturday, Nov 11, and Nov 18, from 9 a.m. to noon.

We have a real need for help. A paper was passed at chamber and only 1 person signed up to help. If we are to continue to have the Blaze we need more help.

Groups who can help are church groups,  Boy Scouts and families or individuals.
