Letter: Thanks for successful fireworks show

I once again had the pleasure of setting up and firing this year’s 4th of July Fireworks Display held in Park Rapids. Each year that I have taken on this task I have had the pleasure of working with some of the most responsible people who I have ever worked with for a fireworks production such as this event. I am so thankful and amazed on just how organized all these different entities are and also how they all work together in an effort to help make our job much easier.

I want to thank the Rotary for once again sponsoring this event, David Collins and his staff for all of their organizations to help, Greg Hensel and his staff for preparing and cleaning up the site, Dwight and Laurie Patterson of Pats Security for once again watching our backs, Butch De La Hunt for being very easy to work with for our radio output, the fire, EMS, police and sheriff’s departments for their presence and Pizza Hut, for once again donating our supper.

Great job by all.

Tammy and I want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping make this a beautiful display each season. Thank you all and I look forward to hopefully seeing you next year.
