Voice of Freedom

The members of the Freedom Rec. Committee would like to thank everyone that donated their time, donations of refreshments, pumpkins, their trunk or treat cars, the members of the FVFD and their truck, decorating, and so much more! Our Halloween party was a huge success! During the time of the party, the rain stopped. The children enjoyed the bounce house, and the treats were plentiful.

Special thanks to our Selectman Ron Price who attended to see what we do and I rewarded him with a goodie bag to take home and enjoy. Also Bob Kanzler who was in charge of pumpkin decorating. He really enjoys working with the children.

And most of all, we want to thank the public for attending! Because of you, our free event was a success!
