To the editor:
I want to thank the committee that put together the program for the New Ulm Battery & Herman Monument celebration this past weekend. People may not fully understand the work that goes into planning this type of event. The fireworks were outstanding! As we were enjoying the show, one of your city council members was overheard saying, "You can thank the council for this"...
Sir, it was NOT the council that brought the fireworks to town, it was this committee of volunteers, notably: Tom Furth, Wendy Enter, Joel Albrecht and others. OK, you made a donation. Good for you. How about now taking the initiative and bring fireworks to New Ulm on the 4th of July so we don't have to drive to Sleepy Eye, Hanska or other towns?
