Recognizing our local athletes important

I would like to thank you very much for the excellent article ‘Local athletes shine at Canada Winter Games’.

I am a very proud Grandma who was fortunate enough to be able to attend the first week of the games and I am so glad that our young people were personally recognized for their efforts. They did us very proud.

There have been past games and championships in which our young people have done very well with no recognition. Thank you for taking the time and space in your paper to pay them their dues.
