Dear Stephen king,
I am a grade ten student from Sussex Regional High School. My school would like to know if you would consider visiting our school here in Sussex.
Sussex is a quiet, friendly and peaceful little town found in New Brunswick. You might think that it would be a waste of time to come to Sussex but it would benefit you in many different ways. If you were to come to Sussex it could give you a couple new ideas for a novel. Here in Sussex we have a couple different things that attract attention. Here in Sussex we have twenty-six murals around town which is why Sussex is known as the mural capital of Atlantic Canada. Also just outside of Sussex we have eight covered bridges that are about 10 minutes out of town which is why we are known as the covered bridges capital of Atlantic Canada.
Sussex is also known as Dairytown, because we have many farms that surround Sussex. Here in Sussex we have a statue of the world’s largest cow, which is 12 feet high and 16 feet long, which is a tribute to our dairy heritage. So if you were to come to Sussex, you could see our wonderful cows here in Sussex. Every year here in Sussex during the summer, we host Atlantic Canada’s largest balloon fiesta where close to 35,000 people come to watch balloons take off, visit the amusement park and attend a free concert. If you need a little vacation, Sussex would be a good place to come to relax, because there is no major traffic or events that occur in Sussex. Sussex has over 4,000 residents and 35,000 people around the area, so if you came to Sussex, you would be the main focus.
If you were to come to Sussex, people that don’t know you around here would get to know who you are better and might try reading some of your books. Although our town isn’t the biggest place in New Brunswick but it probably has fresher air then other places. Sussex has various shops and restaurants to visit like our clothing stores and book stores. Also Sussex has a variety of activities to do while you’re here, such as walking the bluff, visiting the parks and museums, skating at our rink. Also while you are here in Sussex, you could visit the surrounding towns and cities around Sussex such as Saint John, Moncton or Fredericton. I hope you take into consideration of visiting our little town Sussex, New Brunswick.Sincerely,
