Letter to the editor: Vicksburg earned its license to thrill

We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the many organizations and individuals that supported the 10th Annual Ritz on the River-007 License to Thrill! The performance by the Troy Laz band was delightful. With a portion of the proceeds going 7 Days for the Troops, it really showcased how much our city cares. Scott Burns with 7 Days for the Troops engaged the crowd and together the VCC and Scott raised $17,000! This is the most ever raised in the 10 years of Ritz on the River. Scott in turn was able to present G6:2 with a track chair for the group to use for their guided hunts for disabled veterans and other persons with disabilities.
