Lighting up the sky

To the editor:

On behalf of the AHS Marching Rams, boosters and alumni, we would like to thank Mayor Thane, the AFD, the APD, the DPW, AHS Marching Rams band directors, majorette adviser and flag team adviser for helping to make our show, "Light Up The Sky With The Marching Rams," a huge success.

Special thanks to Sean Hardies for keeping our lights glowing for the past 14 years. From 10 generators to circuit breakers -- progress. Thank you to WCSS and WVTL for advertising our show on the radio. It was greatly appreciated.

Thank you to all of the school districts in Montgomery County and beyond for allowing us to distribute our flyers to their students. We appreciated it very much. Many students from near and far drove through our unique show. Thank you to all who donated printed flyers. Without your help, we would not have been able to reach so many children. Also thank you to the Leader-Herald, the Recorder and the Gazette for their coverage.

Many thanks to everyone who donated paint and wood to make the beautiful displays and thanks to everyone who donated food for the workers during the show.

It kept us warm while working out in the cold from Nov. 30 to Dec. 23.

Special thanks to all of the Marching Rams, boosters, alumni and community members who worked the show every night. We appreciate you braving the cold and rain in order to allow all who enter to enjoy the show.

Together we raised over $17,000 for the AHS Marching Rams to use toward their trip to Washington, D.C., in January.

To all of our neighbors boarding the premises, a special thank you, for your patience during the duration of the show.

Another year of creating tourism for Montgomery County. Many people who drove through our show mentioned eating at local restaurants and shopping in our stores. I'm sure they gassed up before heading home, too.

"Light Up The Sky With The Marching Rams" will return in 2013 for your enjoyment and holiday spirit.

We wish everyone a very happy, healthy and prosperous new year. Thank you for supporting the AHS Marching Rams -- the ambassadors and pride of Amsterdam.

Leslie Mihalek

and Linda Selbert,

Amsterdam
