Letter to the editor: Thanks, neighbors

To the editor:

Saturday morning, like many others, I joined my wife and neighbor at Lyons Park for a game of tennis before breakfast at Levee Café. And, this Saturday, like many recently there was quite the crowd of people playing pickle ball. It is wonderful to see so many people taking advantage of the park in North Lawrence. With more pickle ball players than courts, we were incredibly grateful that the players bent the Parks and Rec guidelines and let us use the tennis court even though they were there first. Thank you for being neighborly, pickle ballers, we appreciate it. Yet another reason that we love this city and our neighbors in North Lawrence.

Kris Beckland,
