It is with great pleasure that I write this letter to congratulate the residents and volunteers of Mount Pearl concerning their wonderful city and this year’s fantastic Frosty Festival.
I am a resident of St. John’s but attend most things in Mount Pearl. I commenced attending functions in Mount Pearl mostly because my home in Cowan Heights is in such close proximity to that city. It is there that I find the friendliness of the people to be similar to that of the outport where I grew up.
The friendliness, kindness and togetherness of the residents is outstanding. They accepted me as a member of the Seniors’ Independence Group, and I am not bragging when I say it is second to none in this province.
This year’s Frosty Festival, in which I was involved, was an enormous success and indeed something to brag about. The local entertainment, the dinner theatre, the Jiggs’ dinner, etc., were just phenomenal.
One of the things that I admire about Mount Pearl is the way their city councillors and MHAs are always present at various functions. Whether it is a dinner at the seniors’ group or any other function, you can rest assured the people who represent the citizens are in attendance. I wonder, could we say the same about the City of St. John’s?
Come on Mount Pearl! With your seniors’ group, your Frosty Festival, your summer activities, your snowclearing, and many other good things too numerous to mention, you are functioning extremely well on your own. To those promoting amalgamation, tell them — in no uncertain terms — to get lost.
Hurrah! Mount Pearl, you are a super city. Keep up the good work!
