To the Editor:

To those who joined us at practices, cheered from the sidelines, decorated buses with signs, held creative fundraisers with friends, gave our athletes the experience of a world-renowned golf course, baked and baked some more for our pie sales, loaned a space for our pie tent, printed our banners, donated to help purchase new equipment, jumped into frigid waters, graciously loaned a school van, applauded our accomplishments, voted for our participation in community events, skated to support our athletes, waved to our lighted tractor, afforded our athletes and coaches the ride of a lifetime on the Elf Express or simply shared a smile and a high-five, Manchester Special Olympics thanks a wonderfully supportive community and wishes all a happy 2014!
