Sad that this group is so arrogant or simply desperate to Lie to our local paper about the fundraising and how the money is spent.

This money doesn't go to the Fire Dept. it is Drill Team money raised and money spent on cost to provide for the team. This includes the beer they drink.

Who does this group answer to? When will the deceit stop?

One wonders which profit number will be reported this year. Last year the day of the event the initial report was profit exceeding $5,600, days later it was in the middle 3,900 range and by February meeting time it was half of that. Makes one wonder?

Maybe we'll get February Thaw!

What happen to this event? Last few years hundreds of sleds, lots of support etc. Racing into the evening hours, this year we were done by 2:30.

Probably can't expect a lot of support when the wife of one of the main organizers gets on her Facebook page and complains about snowmobiles and snowmobilers. Just saying

Well the community continues to prove that by not supporting these people, sooner or later the team cant exist!

Congrats to our community for finally taking a stand!

A few people that might not care where there money goes, or who these events support might continue to attend but it is proven that our community has taken a stand!

As taxpayers we need to ask: How these events are covered by insurance? What happens in the case of a law suit? How are our tax dollars protected? We need to protect our community.

Halloween Party a bust, Never sold out of chicken, and attendance down by less then have...The power of the people for the people...Keep up the good work!

What's new? She is always running her mouth about someone or something.
