Letters: Kids Fishing Derby slated for July 25

It is that time of year again for the 9th annual Park Rapids Kids Fishing Derby.

We are all busy getting things ready for the 25th of July, for the big event.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their continued support. I can't start naming names as I'm sure I would leave someone out by accident. Donators, parents, our crew and grandparents - everyone out there has made this event very special. Teaching our kids how to enjoy the outdoors and how to fend for themselves in this economy is very rewarding on our part. Times are tough this year so our donations are down, but we are there to fish anyway and that's what we are going to do.

We are not taking any phone calls to register kids. But if you have anything you would like to donate to our future fisher people, please call 218-255-0344 (Kim) and let me know. Anything and everything will be greatly appreciated. Thank you everyone and see you there!

Kim Petrie and crew, Park Rapids
