Letters: Generous support comes through for Avenue of Flags

Our people must be among the most generous people on earth. I am so glad to be living in this caring and giving community.

The response to our plea for financial support was just outstanding. We did not meet our long term needs, but the gifts given will ensure that the flags will indeed be flying this year.

Your readers gave gifts from so many locales, that you and the entire staff of your paper should be very proud. Gifts came from all corners of the United States, Florida, Texas, Virginia, to name just a few, and of course from Detroit Lakes and surrounding communities.

Thank you, everyone for your contributions and efforts on the behalf of the Avenue of Flags.
