Proceeds from the Park Rapids Community Christmas Dinner were donated to the Salvation Army. "This holiday we raised $20,000," said Salvation Army volunteer Lori Longworth. The funds came from kettle and charitable donations, plus the holiday meal, which is funded with freewill donations. Longworth said the $20,000 is down slightly from years past but still a remarkable achievement in a small community suffering in the economy.
