The Elk River Youth Lacrosse Association would like to say thank you to everyone that supported our fundraiser over the last three weeks. A special thanks to the local businesses that offered coupon discounts in support of the fundraiser efforts as well. As a new association experiencing significant growth over the last three years, having playing fields for games and tournaments is quickly becoming a priority. The money that was raised is going toward a new, lighted field at the Youth Athletic Complex to be built in partnership with Elk River Youth Football, which is also in dire need of playing fields.
The boys and girls that went door to door had a great time, were treated very well and in the end felt good about themselves for raising money. Some people donated cash, most bought the coupon cards, and some even gave out bottled water to the players. It is great to know what we live in a community that still so willingly helps out the youth programs. Thank you. — Annette Olson, Elk River
