To the Editor:

On behalf of the Sussex County Return Day Committee, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who braved the elements to attend the Return Day festivities this year. As you are aware, there were many changes that came along with the added excitement of having the bice-presidential candidate to attend our event. Unfortunately, there were things beyond our control on both Wednesday and Thursday including the inclement weather and the extra security measures.

We would also like to thank all of those that helped to put together Return Day 2008. It is the many sponsors, organizations, elected and appointed officials, businesses, entertainers, extra police, fire companies, emergency personnel and Sussex Work Release ERT, just to name a few. Not to be excluded are the friends that loaned us their horses, carriages, convertibles and other historic vehicles that helped the Sussex County Return Day Committee put on such a special event.

Extra special thanks to the many volunteers that put in many tireless hours, and especially the Town of Georgetown employees that managed to somehow jump through several hoops to meet the new, needed requirements thrust upon us for quite a different Return Day. Again, as we close out Return Day 2008 we want to thank everyone for the part you took in helping us have such a successful day. Please know that everything was definitely appreciated.

Rosalie Walls, President
