I am writing this letter in regard to the “Carousel of Light,” the beautiful carousel that is bringing joy to young and old alike.
This carousel, at the Mullen-Hall Elementary School playground, has brought joy to my granddaughter and me this summer.
To sit on one of those horses and see the sparkle in her eyes as we go up and down and around and around, singing along with the music, is one of the most beautiful feelings in the world.
I have had many fun times on the Carousel of Light this summer and have heard all different songs as it goes around. But while being on those beautifully crafted horses and knowing the joy and happiness, you realize that one man has carved every single horse and seat.
With what surely must have been a lot of blood, sweat and tears, the beauty of the horses, waves, and seats comes to light and gives to everyone the joy from another era.
I also want to mention Beth, who has tirelessly been here to make people happy, all summer long. She has had help and I thank everyone. Beth, you rock.
As the summer gets closer to the end, there is a feeling of sadness. The Carousel of Light needs a forever home.
From the bottom of my heart, I hope and pray that in this beautiful town, with a lot of beautiful people, that someone, somewhere, will find it in their heart to keep this memory alive and going strong.
