Letter to the Editor: Thank you for Fourth of July events
To everyone who was lucky enough to be in Pequot Lakes last Monday and Tuesday, thank you so much for joining our celebrations.
Monday evening, the band SOLO played to a large audience waiting for the fireworks that were organized by the Pequot Lakes Chamber - and thanks to the sponsors who made those fireworks possible.
Community Action of Pequot Lakes was busy running a beer garden that will benefit the Miss Pequot Lakes Scholarship event. Many food vendors were local.
Tuesday started early with the fire department breakfast, and don't forget the library's popcorn wagon. Once again, the Pequot Lakes Chamber did a stellar job of organizing the Stars and Stripes Parade, and their sponsors were to be congratulated. So many businesses and groups participated in the parade. The Legion had its beer garden, and businesses all over town were serving food and drink.
If you hear a "theme" in this conversation, I hope you realize this was truly a community event, not to forget that the viewing crowd seemed to be the largest I've seen.
Many thanks to everyone who participated and enjoyed!
Pequot Lakes mayor
