Thinks beer at event was disgusting

Dear Editor:

I do not know who thought of the idea of a "Spring Fling" here in Andalusia. To me, I honestly thought it was a great family-oriented affair until I drove up on the parking lot Friday afternoon to watch my granddaughter play softball. The very first thing I see is a huge Miller beer truck parked next to a large tent that I suppose was fixed to sell the beer.

This was the most disgusting sight to think this was a family (kids and all) type of event, I do not approve of drinking any kind of alcohol and time or place, but that is up to the individual, but let's do not encourage our kids to do this thing, I think we have all seen what this can do to everyone. Let's do not a ruin a good event for the family by allowing alcohol to be a part of it.
