Thanks for making events so accessible

As a “differently abled” person, I want to express many thanks to the various city of Everett employees from the Cultural Arts Department, the Parks Department, the Paratransit Department, the Everett High ROTC, the Police Department, the City Council and the various sponsors for being supporters of our annual celebration of July Fourth. Without their continued support, I would not be able to attend the many events that were scheduled, along with the other events offered free to us that are coming up in the next two months. Special thanks to Carol and Lisa who watched over me to make sure I was safe and OK and got safely to the Paratransit bus. Well done by all.
