Peanut Days succeeds

To the editor:

A big “thank you” to the businesses and citizens of Fort Dodge and surrounding areas for purchasing peanuts during the months of May and June. To the 200 businesses that purchased boxes of peanuts from our members, thank you for supporting us year after year. Three businesses–Hy-Vee, Fareway, and Walmart–provide us with a location to set up for our one-day public peanut displays where individuals can support our cause by donating in exchange for bags of peanuts. We appreciate the space those businesses provide. For the first time this year, Julie Pingle and the K-Kids, volunteered to set at one door for the day, and we thank them for that help.

Proceeds from Peanut Days help us to provide the eight $1,000 scholarships we give yearly. Because of the participation and support of all the community, Peanut Days was again a success. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
