Lions Club says thanks

To the editor:

On behalf of the Fairmont Lions Club I would like to thank the people who participated at our Fly in Breakfast this past June and our Ring Toss Stand at the Martin County Fair.

The funds generated will be forwarded onto local Head Start, Lets Go Fishing, Kinship, and Dollars for Scholars. Funds also will go to the Minnesota Eye Bank, University of Minnesota Lions Hearing Center, and Can do Canines assistance dogs.

Without our local airport and the help of Lee Steinkamp, Radann Dawson, Verlus Burkhardt and PS Aviation of Jackson, Minn., also the Kinship Mentors and Mentees that helped set up tables and serve, we could not of drawn the over 900 people and some 40 aircraft to enjoy that beautiful day in June.

Thank you Olson Rental, Rosens Inc, Estherville Foods, McDonalds, Culligan, Freedom Value Center, Walgreens, Dave Kuhl, Fairmont Police Dept., Hy-vee and Fareway Foods of Fairmont. And a big thanks to the Sentinel and Photo Press.
