Letter to the editor: Middlebury Flag Football offers thanks to volunteers

The Middlebury Flag Football Board (MFF) would like to publicly thank its many volunteers who made this past year a success. Our motto is, “Safety, Sportsmanship and Fun.” This year, MFF served 120 young athletes of the greater Middlebury Community.
