True spirit

Jack and Norma Elliott

To the editor:
This past weekend, Rainy River once again showed why it was such a great place to live.
Why? Because of the people who come out to volunteer and support their community.
A great big thank you to the organizers. Meghan Shanks and her crew did a spectacular job.
The ball games, the parade, all the food venues, the entertainment, those pilots at the flying club, and the folks who have to pick up all the garbage we created.
Those kids (young and old) at the cardboard boat races were a real hoot, as well.
I know everyone is exhausted, so take a day or two off and then let’s get ready to do it all over again—next year.
