A trailer has been placed in the Speak Easy parking lot for aluminum can recycling. Proceeds will benefit the Detroit Lakes Lions Club.


"The Cormorant Lions had (a trailer) and we're heard of other clubs using it to make money," Lions member Jim Granger said.

So he and Lions member Armand Radke found a trailer, doctored and painted it up and got Speak Easy's Michael Mercil's blessing to park it in the parking lot for the public to have easy access to it.
