Letters: Grandchildren caught fish to save fireworks

The fireworks celebration has been a highlight of our summers in Park Rapids for over 20 years. More recently, our grandchildren (ages 9 and 7) have attended for the past several years.

When they were made aware of the funding shortfall, they wanted to help. So I agreed to donate 50 cents for every fish they caught (and released) off our dock. They caught a lot of fish. A donation of $75 was made by Cassidy and Trey Brzycki. They will be there for the fireworks this year and hopefully for many years to come.
