Amesbury earns rave reviews for Fireball Run

To the editor:

On Friday, Sept. 28, as many people are aware, the Amesbury Chamber of Commerce in partnership with The Provident Bank hosted the Fireball Run 2012: Northern Exposure as a “Passage Control” stop. We had an amazing turnout despite the pouring rain and had nothing but rave reviews from the participants of the run and the production team.

The team at the Amesbury Chamber of Commerce is grateful to the many people who helped put this event together and those who came out to stand in the rain and cheer for their city and the wonderful cause that the Fireball Run supports, recovering America’s Missing Children.

First and foremost, our Platinum Sponsor – The Provident Bank! Thank you, thank you, we cannot thank you enough for your generosity in making this event possible for Amesbury.

I would also like to thank the Amesbury Hat Museum and its staff members, Peter Bryant and Suzanne Cote, for participating in this event. Although, most of the crowd was not able to see this take place (yet — we hope to see video of it in the future!), the hat museum served as the “mission” for the rally participants. They had to find it and take a picture with their Amesbury hat on. We hope that between the exposure from Fireball Run and Amesbury’s recent “Chronicle” appearance that the historical treasures of Amesbury continue to get the recognition and love that they deserve.

The Amesbury Chamber of Commerce would also like to thank: Rep. Mike Costello for procuring the $10,000 MOTT grant from the Massachusetts Department of Travel and Tourism on the Chamber’s behalf; ARC Technologies; Seaport Signworks; Shaheen Brothers; Newburyport Five Cents Savings Bank; Healey, Deshaies, Gagliardi & Woelfel, PC; Gould Insurance; Bartley Machine and Manufacturing; Turner Motorsport: Parts and Performance for BMW’s; German Autosport; LeBaron Bonney; Stoneridge Properties; Xfinity; Ovedia Artisan Chocolates; Amesbury Towing Company; Jackson Lumber.
