To the editor:

As the sponsor of the 6th Annual Bricks and Spokes, the Vicksburg Main Street Program wishes to recognize several organizations and individuals who helped make our 6th Annual Bricks and Spokes bicycle ride a huge success. The long term goal for the event Bricks and Spokes, is to raise money for the Vicksburg Main Street Program, a non-profit organization, that serves the Downtown area.

Many thanks go to all of our volunteers who helped make the event happen: Fred and Lisa Burkhalter, Paul & Donna Ingram, Paul and Kathy Eagles, Austin Hopkins, Thomas Tarver, David Sharp, Joyce Clingan, Skipper Guizerix, Colby Hopkins, Peggy Robinson, MiHyang Faulks, Walter Osborne, Anna Harbin, Dean Anderson, Jane Flowers, Elyce Curry, Paul & Donna Ingram, Sally Sheffield, Marianne Ingram, Alaina Lipe, Joe Giambrone, Joel Langford, Rodger Hopkins and Ricky Webster. Without each of these volunteers, the event would not have been the huge success it was. The Vicksburg Main Street Program truly appreciates the effort, support, and dedication that these volunteers gave towards the 6th Annual Bricks and Spokes.
