To the editor:
We would like to extend a huge "thank you" to all of the businesses and individuals who contributed to and helped with the benefit for Laura Lennon which was held on Aug. 18. Laura has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and is undergoing treatment. Laura, her husband Brad, and the Benefit Committee were all extremely overwhelmed by the generosity and good will exhibited by the entire community. We cannot begin to thank businesses and individuals by name because so many, many people helped in a small or big way to make the benefit a success and raise funds for this special cause. This event convinced us of the incredible spirit of helpfulness in our community and gave us great hope for the future of Fort Dodge and the surrounding communities.
If you were one of the large number of people who helped, please know that your contribution, support, and assistance did not go unnoticed and was appreciated so very much. Please continue to pray for Laura and Brad as they go on with their fight. Submitted on behalf of the Laura Lennon Benefit Committee.
