How about obeying laws?

To the Editor:

One last comment on ELCA allowing its churches to become sanctuary churches. Jesus is compassionate and forgiving. He tells us in the Bible to also be compassionate and forgiving. But nowhere in the Bible does he tell us to break the law.

Brew and BBQ coming up

To the Editor:

The Fairmont Rotary Club is pleased to announce that it is partnering with the Adventure Playground committee and MOSS to present the second annual Bourbon Brew and BBQ event on Oct. 5 at the sheep shed at the Martin County Fairgrounds.

Proceeds from the event will go toward completion of the Adventure Playground at Gomsrud Park.

The event will provide an evening of fun including live entertainment, bourbon tastings, local brewery tastings, BBQ and yard games.

Rotary was involved in the playground project from the very beginning when it hosted the initial fundraiser benefitting the playground, and is now happy to be able to book end that effort with what should be the last fundraiser necessary to make that all-inclusive playground a reality.

After completion of the playground, Rotary also hopes to be able to continue this great event in the future to raise money to support other local projects.

If you would like more information on this event or would like to be a sponsor, please contact Brandon Edmundson (brandon@krasha.com) or Sara Pierce (sara@pierceaccountingservices.com).

Brandon Edmundson,

president of Fairmont Rotary Club
