As the hometown of U.S. Olympian and bronze medal-winning luger Erin Hamlin, the village of Remsen is receiving some recognition from Vice President Mike Pence.

Remsen Mayor Marty Flint received a letter from Pence recognizing the local community and its favorite Olympian.

“Thank you, Vice President Pence,” the Village of Remsen said on its Facebook page, with a photo of Pence’s letter to Mayor Flint attached.

“As leader of the United States delegation to the 2018 Olympic Winter Games, I am proud to join the people in Remsen in honoring your community’s own Erin Hamlin of the U.S. Olympic Team in PyeongChang, South Korea,” the letter began.
