To the Editor:

Thank you Rene and your Hampton Parks and Recreation crew for a wonderful community affair this past weekend at the Hampton tree lighting.

All ages had a good time singing Christmas carols, hopping on the tractor pull with Santa, eating molasses cookies, brownies, chowder, hot cocoa and popcorn supplied by local groups and restaurants, and also enjoying a great photo Kiosk sponsored by the Hampton police in Marelli's Market.

It takes a lot of planning and organization to make an event work. You did it from set-up to takedown all went well and you made many people happy. Happy holidays.
