Landis fall festival was well planned and enjoyable
I just want to say a big thank you to the folks in the town of Landis for putting the fall fest together. This was a well-planned event. I know you put a lot of time into the planning. Everyone, big and small, had a good time. It was a lot of fun handing out candy to the kids. Everyone who had a hand in it, a big “high five” goes to you for all your hard work. Again, thanks, and looking forward to this next year.

Above and beyond
We want to give a special thank you to Scott Hatley, a first responder, who did an excellent job when he was called to our retirement home, the Meadows of Rockwell. He went above and beyond his duty and never gave up. Thank you again, Scott Hatley, for being such a wonderful and caring person.

North team is inspiring
Thank you for the great article on the North Rowan High boys’ championship basketball team. We were really interested in and inspired by them, and we think they are wonderful state champions. It’s also really neat that they won the state title for the first time since 1986, exactly 25 years ago.
We know some of the guys on the team, but most of the guys we don’t. T.J. Bates is an inspiration to play basketball and get good grades. Jordan Kimber is a real cool dude who works very hard and is a good leader on court. Both of the guys named Mike (Connor and Bowman) proved that freshmen can come on the team and contribute in big ways. Pierre Givens is real cool, too, and Malik Ford is a beast in the paint.
We like Coach Mitchell because it’s obvious he’s a great coach, and he knows how to assemble a great team. We hope North wins another state championship this year!

Neighbor shares tasty talents
It is with much delight I looked through the recipes in Wednesday’s paper that were written and tested by Sara Hill — a wonderful friend and neighbor. I had firsthand “tasting” of these scrumptious goodies, as I have of others over the years.
Another of her great talents are her roses, which I enjoy from my deck and on my table.
It is wonderful to share my “bounty” with all Salisbury Post readers.
Sara is a warm, loving and caring Christian lady.
