Update: Missing 5-year-old from fatal Bemidji fire found alive

Letter: Thanks for a great fireworks show

What a blast!

On behalf of the the Park Rapids Rotary Club, I would like to express my heartfelt thanks for the great community fundraising effort that made our spectacular July 4 fireworks display possible.

Our club members, vendors, volunteers, and most importantly, our financial contributors all made the commitment to see a great Park Rapids' tradition continue on in grand style. Live pyrotechnics is always a challenge, especially when mother nature is putting on her own show at the same time. And despite dodging the storm clouds and a gremlin in the electrical firing panel that cut short the finale, it was a great show.

Thanks again to everyone who made a donation. And as for the shells that didn't go off, well that's just ammo and money in the bank for next year!
