Letter to the editor: City on top of it

To the editor:

I belong to Floozies and Friends. We are volunteers who welcome the sternwheelers when they dock in The Dalles and have a blast doing so.

A few Mondays ago, we had a ship arrive (thank heavens it was late) and the dock was a mess. People had been swimming, picnicking and partying all weekend long.

Garbage was everywhere. Graffiti was on the walls and road. We notified the city instantly. They were on the job and cleaned up the garbage, washed off the graffiti. The place was looking good before the ship arrived. Kudos to the city.

We live in a beautiful area. Let’s keep it looking good. People, please clean up your mess.

In closing, I want to thank the firemen, police, Red Cross, Home at Last, people who helped with the shelters and all of you that helped during the fire. You are awesome!
