Dear Editor:


I have many happy memories of my childhood in Fairfield. It was a community filled with loving and caring people who spoke into my life.

I am still proud to live in Fairfield today and still see so many people speaking into the lives of our youth – people who work with sports and other events planned for our youth in churches and other organizations.

I wish to commend our Mayor, City Council, and the Chamber of Commerce for providing activities for young and old, such as a good library and events for all ages.

A Great example is our Annual Show of Wheels. This event brought in people and positive excitement. On Friday evening there was an informal gathering at NAPA Auto Parts, which included free hot dogs and lots of fun and a good time.

This concluded with a parade of cars, pickups, and motorcycles “cruising through town.” They drove past the nursing homes where they were met with cheers and smiles! This is what a community is about!

It costs money to provide these activities and I believe it is money well spent. These events bring profits to our local businesses, which in turn help support our community.

I believe we have a good place to raise our children and to give them good memories. Let’s keep up the good work.
