Our heartfelt thanks to everyone who participated.

Here's another – "give ___ my/our heartfelt thanks":

I give you my heartfelt thanks for everthing that you've done for me over the years.

# (hash tag)

On social media services, the symbol "#" is called a "hash tag". People use hash tags to mark the topic of a social media message.

The phrase "hash tag" also refers to the combination of that symbol with a word. For example, if you're writing a message on Twitter about learning English, you could add the hash tag "#English" to the end of your message.

Outside of social media, the "#" symbol is called the "pound symbol". You might hear this if you call a company with an automated customer service system:

Press "pound" to hear more options.


People who come to an event like a meeting, a conference, or a political rally can be called "attendees".

We printed out name tags for each of the attendees.

"Attendee" is a little formal. The people who organize an event would probably use the word "attendees" to talk about the people who came, but the attendees themselves might not refer to themselves that way.
