To the Editor:
(Re: “No one certain how to solve loss of identity,” May 21, 2015) We have many other thriving businesses in Ripon and perhaps a conversation can be started on some community events on their behalf if Cookie Days is discontinued.
Here are a few lighthearted ideas:
* The “Home of the Republican Party Annual Pickle O’Pete Parade” ...
* Annual “Boca Grande Free Internet Weekend”
* Alliance Laundry “Decorate a Wash Tub Days”
* “J.M. Smuckers Annual Jelly Jam Band Days” ...
Humor aside, it is a serious situation for the employees who are devastated by the plant closure. Ripon has a strong community and manufacturing structure and it is hoped that available positions are found for those who require them. ...
