Community makes inaugural smelt fry a huge success

On behalf of the Elk River American Legion I would like to say “Thank You” to everyone that attended our Inaugural Smelt Fry Tuesday, May 1. We served over 380 people, and we are already making plans to make this a bigger and better event next year.

I would also like to say “Thank You” to the volunteers, as the smelt fry was supported by members of the American Legion, Sons of the American Legion, Ladies Auxiliary and business leaders in our community. It would be very difficult to have these events without the volunteers, and also the support of the community.   —  Mike Beyer, vice commander, Post 112 Elk River American Legion
