To the Editor:
I would like to thank the businesses that participated in the "Be Pampered on the Plaza" event on May 8 in downtown Fairmont. Not only was it a fun evening, I also had the luxury of winning the basket of gifts donated by participating businesses.
I have enjoyed shopping in Fairmont and have seen new businesses added downtown, in the surrounding area and the mall. The Opera House, Red Rock Center, Historical Society and annual festivals add a mix of culture and activities year round.
There are a number of dining opportunities too.
The chain of lakes with all the parks add recreational opportunities my husband and I enjoy. We look forward to retiring in Fairmont in the future.
