Jim Brainard - Mayor
City of Carmel Indiana

Dear Mayor Brainard...
On behalf of the SubCommittee, I would like to express our gratitude and thanks for the wonderful cooperation our group received from the City of Carmel before and during our 14th Annual SubRegatta we held last weekend at the city reflecting pond.
Your Parks and Recreation Department folks were a joy to work with and bent over backwards to make us feel at home. Chief Callahan and the fellows over at the firehall, where we had our friday evening gathering, were terrific. Dave Klingensmith at the Street Department lent valuable assistance as well.
I could not count how many of our members told me how much they enjoyed running their submarines in the beautiful reflecting pond and gathering in the surrounding park area for our model boat event. They greatly enjoyed the hospitality they received from the shops, hotels and restaurants of Carmel. Many members said they would like to come back to Carmel again.
Carmel is a First Class City with First Class People.
Thank you so much!

Thank you for writing. We enjoy having the group here and hope that they will return for many years. The area around the reflecting pool should only get better and better as the City Center project continues to develop.
