Backus firefighters appreciate support

The Backus fireman would like to thank all the people who came to our 48th annual Smelt and Fish Fry fundraiser. We would also like to thank everyone who helped us prepare for and the day of the event.

Also thank you to Ross and Alicia Borman for their generous donation to purchase new fryers in memory of Pat and Patty Borman.

Thank you again for your support.

I've worked at the Brainerd Dispatch with various duties since Dec. 7, 1983. Starting off as an Ad Designer and currently Director of Audience Development. The Dispatch has been an interesting and challenging place to work. I'm fortunate to have made many friends, both co-workers and customers.
