H~ happiness on the faces of the people walking home through the commons on a sunny Friday afternoon.
A~ all of the beautiful lakes and beaches that that you hold protected in your boundaries.
L~ laughter drifting up from the patio's on Argyle Street; even as autumn sets in, the contentment spreads all through downtown
I~ independence of shops and restaurants, boutiques and cafes; treating people right, the local-loving way
F~ freedom to canoe on the arm, skate on the oval, walk on the waterfront or bike in Point Pleasant
A~ appreciation for all the festivals, events, music and entertainment that keep the people of this city youthful and bright
X~ exact moment I realized the magnificence of this little city: the minute I called you my home. —Smiling Samaritan
