Heard on the Street in Easton
"I just wanted to say thank you for the Easton Ambassadors. Recently I was in the circle (shopping at the Carmelkorn Shop) and noticed a young man sweeping and picking up litter. I thanked him for being there. As a lifetime resident of Easton, I really want to see downtown Easton continue to thrive and grow. The State Theater, Crayola Factory, and the retailers and restaurants of Easton continue to make it an attractive place to shop, live and play."
" Also thank you for the wonderful staff both inside the theater and outside. May I say it was so nice to see the man outside keeping things clean, [Ambassador] Ranea. He helped us, my husband and I, on the sidewalks because of the scooter and the walker. We told him we came early to eat; he then proceded to walk us all the way down to the circle. I have to say that was extra nice of him to do. Being seniors, you sometimes feel unsafe in a area you are not used to being in. He made us feel so welcome to Easton. Thank you all!"
