Dear Editor:

It looks like we saved the very best for last! I want to thank the nearly 1,000 Carbon County seniors who joined me at Memorial Hall on Thursday, October 21 for my final Senior Fair as State Representative.

This year's fair broke all the records thanks to the outstanding job getting the word out from the Times-News and Blue Ridge TV – our community is very fortunate to have such dedicated media outlets focusing on the news and events that matter in Carbon County.

I'd like to thank Tracey Malaska, Frank Bradley, Jeremy Gerhart, Christina Bradley and the entire staff at Memorial Hall for their hard work setting up and tearing down as well as their cooking skills making sure seniors and vendors alike got a great lunch.

As usual big thanks must go to the more than 70 vendors who came early, stayed late and did a great job working with our seniors to make sure they had the information they needed – as well as some goodies to take home!

Once again the generosity of our seniors who donated to our Food Drive for Good Shepherd Food Bank was fantastic. We filled every bin to overflowing and sent a van away with shock absorbers groaning under the weight of donated food that will help make a huge difference in making sure nobody has to go to bed hungry in Carbon County.

Last, but most certainly not least, I want to thank our seniors for coming out and taking part in the fair – it just couldn't happen without your enthusiasm and support and I hope you all had a good time.

Thank you all for your support in making my final Senior Fair such a huge success.

Rep. Keith McCall
