Visitors discover Vienna’s spirit

viennaTimes-logo-300x85LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Dec. 31, 2015My wife, family, and I recently drove through your community on a trip from Wisconsin to Kentucky. I picked up a copy of your local newspaper (The Vienna Times) to pass the time while my wife took her turn at driving. It was the November 26th Thanksgiving edition.

As I read, I was astounded by the close knit nature of your community and by all the activities and goings on that I read about. I even read aloud from some of the expressions of thanks offered by local students in the “What I Am Thankful For” section. Some touched our hearts while others made us laugh out loud at the humor.

The 75 cents I paid for the paper was returned to us many times in the enjoyment we got from it.

I tucked the paper away when we got home and rediscovered it today. It brought back good memories from that trip.

If we ever move to a small town, I hope it has half of the spirit that we read about in Vienna.

Thanks for the happy times you gave us.

What a great newspaper… a true gem.
