NT Fall Fair princess says thank you

My final thank you goes to the people of the North Thompson Valley: we couldn't have done it without all of your support

Editor, The Times:

To the North Thompson Valley;

This year has been something I would have never expected to be a part of; traveling around B.C., learning about different communities, and making some friendships that will last a lifetime.

With a year like this there are so many people to thank.

First, I would like to thank my sponsor, The Jim’s Foods Markets. I have had the pleasure of being your employee for the past four years, and without you I wouldn’t have been able to experience this program.

And thank you to the ladies with whom I started this program with, Diane and Wendy, you ladies have made a difference in my life by introducing me to this program and I don’t think I can thank you enough.

I would also like to take this time to say thank you to my sister Alexandra Brown, you signed me up for this program, and you’re the reason I am who I am today. Good luck in life and I love you.

Now to my fellow Royalty: remember we will always have each other, and this year would have never been the same without you, I love you both and good luck.

My final thank you goes to the people of the North Thompson Valley: we couldn’t have done it without all of your support, and you are what truly makes this program succeed. Thank you for everything.

Cassandra Brown
