Streetwalkers say 'thanks'

Wednesday, July 12, 2017

Dear editor,

On behalf of the "Streetwalkers" who represent the Mountain Home Volunteer Fire Department, I would like to thank each and every individual who donated to our annual Fourth of July fireworks. I would also like to thank the many generous business owners, who give so generously to this community for the benefit of having a fun-filled family celebration and bringing everyone together for a safe and wonderful celebration of the birth of our Country.

We are always amazed each year how generous this community is to make our fireworks such a success. Once again, we exceeded last year's total and will have to work harder next year to reach our goal.

My "Streetwalker" crew consists of the following: Judy Allred, Stephanie Bergh, Vickie Bermensolo, Mary Beth Brown, Sharon Fletcher, Mary Holm, Terry Knox, June Lonigro, Nancy Mason, Mary Miracle, Mary Lou Purcell, Jeanette Rost and Theresa Wilson. These girls work extra hard on Wednesday evenings walking through your neighborhoods asking for donations for the fireworks from March through June to make each Fourth of July celebration memorable for all generations.

I would also like to thank Chief Mark Moore and all the firemen for providing our flyers and shirts and doing their part for our annual display. I would also like to thank and remember Barb Cristobal, our first leader of the Streetwalkers. Without her, the "Streetwalkers" would never have been formed. Miss you, Barb.

And give yourselves a pat on the back for making Mountain Home's fireworks show better and better every year. It was great to see so many of you at the golf course enjoying the show.

Marianne Bate, Streetwalker madame
