Visitors praise center and residents

-A A +A

Dear Mayor Joe Shaw,
I was ecstatic to learn of the new Native American Studies Center in your town. On Thursday evening, Oct. 4, my family and I made the more than 100-mile trip to Lancaster for the grand opening.
It was all that we could have asked for and more. It is second to none and everyone involved should feel proud.  Thank you and your fellow City Council members for investing in this endeavor.
I wanted to let you know as well just how beautiful and friendly your town is. We took time to stroll around the grounds of the historic courthouse and to marvel at the new one. Lancaster surely has bragging rights. Everyone was so friendly, including the police officers.
We appreciate the crosswalk that the police officers set up out front. The officer who worked the cross walk was so friendly; I wish I would have gotten his name. There was a young lady helping him in a different type uniform. She was just as friendly.
We walked out back to see the back of the building and found officers standing guard out back, too.  Those officers greeted us with a smile and asked if we enjoyed our visit. What a wonderful thing to do. It wasn’t just us, but they asked everyone. One of the officers even took time to give us a brief history of Lancaster. It shows that they take great pride in their work.
We left Lancaster feeling as if we had been in our own hometown. Thank you again for assistance in making this center a reality.
