    I read the article about the two individuals who were ” shocked” by the star and cross on Mt Tom. To most people here they are less a religious symbol and more a tradition. Seeing those lights on the mountain brings back many fond childhood memories.

    If we dig deep enough many things in our area have religious roots. Such as the Wasail Weekend itself. I think we should think long and hard before we decide to remove things that are such a part of peoples lives. If there had originally been a big square and a triangle up on that mountain I think most of us would have the same attachment as we do the star and cross.
    I would also like to thank the Rotary for taking care of them all of these years.
