Letter: Community Fish House fundraiser a success

A huge thank you from the Park Rapids Chapter of the Minnesota Darkhouse & Angling Association, to everyone who helped with the BBQ rib dinner fundraiser for the Community Fish House. With over 330 tickets sold, it showed real community support.

A special thank you to Hazel Eskola, our superb cook, the Park Rapids American Legion, Northern Bait and Tackle, Delaney's, Smokey Hills Outdoors, Lions Club members, DeLaHunt Broadcasting, Darkhouse Association members and all others who helped pre-sell tickets.

Thanks to all those who donated for the silent auction and to the many people who volunteered to help.

Monies will be used for the liability insurance, licenses for the fish house, propane, road plowing and all the other necessary things to maintain the Community Fish House.

We feel many people that cannot get out and fish, for whatever reason, will now have an opportunity to do so.

Albin Katzner, member,
