Opinion: July 4 was best one ever for he
I would like to let all the people who made the Fourth of July Celebration 2011 a huge success for me.
I am a single person who goes to different events alone and have limited walking ability. I just want to let all of you know that I feel having this event at the Lions Park has made it much easier for me. It means a lot to me to be near my car, and a short walk to sit on the benches and watch excellent entertainment. The fireworks were really beautiful. I also was able to get some food and the cheeseburger and pretzel were very good.
I hope that Elk River people and businesses will continue to support the 4th of July celebration to continue at Lions Park. I look forward to another great celebration in 2012. The jazz band, and the Bandits really played the best music. I thank each and everyone for the excellent Fourth of July 2011. Plus the fireworks were very beautiful. I have lived here for many years and I feel that today’s experience for me at Lions Park is the best one ever. — Patti Ann Larson, Zimmerman
