Letter: Spirit Is Much More Than Lights


I would like to respond to a letter sent to this paper by A. Volberg, Dec. 25.

In the letter, she is so very unhappy about the lack of holiday lighting in the Village of Farmingdale. She states she is “ashamed,” feels like the Village lacks spirit; that other towns are better.

I have another view. I am proud of Farmingdale! If you want bright lights go to New York City. We are a country town that shows a lot of spirit, some of which comes from this newspaper.

True spirit comes from within; not from a thousand lights! The town looks just fine and I would like to thank the many that took part in this effort-a job well done!

A time ago there were three wise men who looked up and saw only one light.

I am proud to live in Farmingdale, a town I feel has both pride and spirit all year round.
