LETTER: Events should not be held on Sunday

To the Editor:

After church, we (and three of our grandchildren) went to the Fitness Fest and Family Fun Day on Sunday, April 27, at Depot Park in downtown Sanford. Why was the event held on Sunday, rather than Saturday?

Planners should consider having it on Saturday next year, rather than on the day of worship when many folks are observing the Sabbath and attending the church of their choice.

We truly believe attendance would have been better if it were held on a different day of the week. Many early events were missed by those of us who chose not to miss church in favor of Fitness Fest and Family Fun Day.
