www.ParamusPost.com Apologizes To Alison Wolfer And Her Parents

A grievous error occurred during the stage presentation of the Freedom Walk. With a lack of a printed program plus the ambient noise of the huge crowd, this reporter misapplied the name of the singer of the national anthem. It was Alison Wolfer who gave a heart rendering offer of our national anthem. Rightfully so, her mother wrote a note chastising us for the misapplication. A loving parent is always looking out after their offspring's well being. As the father of five wonderful children brought up in Paramus. I can understand the anguish and have corrected it. I thank Michele Wolfer for correcting the oversight.
This is the note that was received:
My daughter sang the National Anthem at this event, and her name is Alison Wolfer, not Allison Warburton. Just in case you cover any of Paramus' events again, ALISON WOLFER is well known for volunteering to sing at many community events. It would be nice if next time you can give her credit in the newspaper, because she deserves to have her correct name.
