It's time for the BLASST thank-you's

Editor:

Well thank God, the 2007 BLASST is over. Well, almost. My last job is to thank everyone. There's a full-page listing in this issue. I certainly hope I didn't leave anyone out, but if I did please accept my apology. Trust me, any omissions were inadvertent and your donations are all appreciated. I want to thank everyone for their love, caring and patriotic spirit embodied in this tri-county community tradition.

Plus a special thank you to the following people for all their efforts to keep this unique community tradition alive and well. Thank you Michelle Glen, Eddie & Bev Hulls, past and present Redneck Women, Mike & Marilyn, Dave & Patty, Henry, Allen, The Beacon, Terry Dupler & Buckeye Lake Marina, Buckeye Lake Hardware, all the businesses that sold our t-shirts, Charlie Prince, Merv Bartholow, Kim Oxley, Buckeye Lake State Park Manager Tim Waln and his staff, ODNR Regional Park Manager Mark West and officersfrom other state parks, Billy Phillips, Mike Jolly of Hamburg Fireworks and last, but most of all Bud & Marty Springer. I am blessed and proud to work with such finepeople.

As always, it was a privilege serving our community and I hope everyone is pleased with their investment in our Buckeye Lake Area Star Spangled Tradition. Victoria Wolfe BLASST co-chair
