Editor: As a 38-year Leesburg resident, I have always enjoyed the town’s holiday parades and shows, and this year was no exception. The efforts of the Leesburg town staff in making all the annual parades, shows and fairs successful is amazing. They make it all look so easy.
This year, as Leesburg mayor, I was privy to the behind the scenes planning and coordination for the 4th of July celebration. I can tell you the staff’s dedication and commitment is simply incredible. There is nothing easy about putting on events involving thousands of people.
The town’s Parks and Recreation, Public Works and Police staff did a fantastic job during the 4th of July parade, concerts and fireworks display, ensuring that everyone who attended was safe and had a great time.
The residents are lucky to have such dedicated and professional staff working for the town. With such committed and talented individuals working together, we can continue to expect excellent events like this one every year.
Mayor Kelly Burk, Leesburg
