Let’s celebrate

NLJ Staff


he time has finally come and the 2021 Newcastle High School All-School Reunion is here. Through a pandemic and obstacles the organizers have
persevered and planned a weekend of fun for all. 

A big thanks goes out to all the individuals who came together to make this event possible, from the main
organizers to the class representatives and other local entities, you deserve a round of applause. 

We want to encourage everyone to take full opportunity of what this weekend has to offer. From the auction at the Weston County Library to the teacher social at the Antlers, from concerts with friends to bouncy houses and animals with the kids, we hope to see everyone enjoyingall of the hard work of so many. Be sure to see the full reunion schedule sponsored by Weston County School District No. 1 on page 2 of the Western Heritage NHS All-School Reunion section inserted in this week’s paper. 

While we are celebrating classmates and all those alumni that came before and after us, we must also remember that this weekend we celebrate our country’s independence. 

The last couple years have been a roller coaster of ups and downs for America, Wyoming and Weston County. From a pandemic to declining revenue, wildfires and human destruction, we have all seen so much hate and destruction that we must embrace what we know this country is based on. 

Over the weekend, let’s celebrate our freedoms
responsibly. Let’s enjoy our neighbors and friends, family and those that we may not care for. Let’s appreciate that we have another day to enjoy this country, our great state and
everything they have to offer. 

The News Letter Journal family is happy to be here
celebrating with you. We are overjoyed that we can once again come together to enjoy Main Street, Newcastle and all of our friends and family. 

Let’s make this a weekend to remember, a 4th of July to always hold close, even if we don’t get to enjoy fireworks. 

And on that note, we would also like to applaud the city and county for making the tough decision to ban the use of fireworks over this weekend. While we know it was a difficult choice, it was the right one. Our firefighters and property aren’t worth an evening of fun. 

Thanks again to everyone who has come together to make this weekend possible. Now it’s time to put on the sun screen, pull up a chair, eat a burger and listen to some great music with wonderful friends.
