To the Editor:
Many thanks to the entire Fanny Wood Day Committee for staging the successful 17th Annual Fanny Wood Day held this past Sunday. Led by co-chairs Steven & Jason Parker of K-9 Resorts, the team made this tremendous undertaking look effortless.
Our hometown was on full display this entire weekend, kicked off with Friday’s reception at the Pat Kuran Cultural Arts Center where local photographers displayed their entries in the “Fotos of Fanwood” contest. And on Saturday, residents had to smile as Fanny Wood Day made the front page of the Star Ledger with “Missing Persons Got Nothing on Fanny”; an amusing take about our legendary Fanny Wood.
On Sunday Fanwood was looking her very best as upwards of 15,000 enjoyed our downtown filled with a wonderful array of local and area merchants, music, food, family fun and games! A big thank you to all the Fanwood business that sponsored so many of the events held throughout the day.
It may not be said enough, but the entire community appreciates the time and effort of all the volunteers who worked to make this weekend a huge success. It makes me very proud to serve in this close-knit community where folks share such a strong commitment to one another.
