To the Editor,

The fourth annual Ohio River Ferryboat Festival at the end of July was a great success, delivering a fun time to the public while raising $2,698 for the Sistersville Ferry in revenue from fares in just one weekend. I would therefore like to thank our sponsors on both sides of the river. I apologize if your name should be on this list and you do not appear on it. If that is the case, please contact me and I will include you in future letters and posts.
