To the editor:
On behalf of all United States of America veterans I want to extend my heartfelt thanks to the W & L Sales Co., its owners Steven and Susan Symons and fellow workers, especially Peggy Nies. This thoughtful company extended a "memorial" gift to all veterans and their families by offering a free night at the Harrisburg Senators baseball park on Memorial Day May 27.
This generosity extended to a reserved seat, admission to the picnic area where free food and drink were available to the veterans and families and a T shirt inscribed with the words "Thanks all Veterans for your service." The owners were there, giving of their time, in processing the tickets, and welcoming the veterans to the game. This first-time endeavor included over 235 veterans and their families and the Symons intend to make it a annual event.
W & L Sales Co. is located at 4050 Industrial Road in Harrisburg. This family owned business has been serving the community since 1933.
