JULY 10 LETTER: Canada Day celebrations in Grand Forks great

Congratulations should go out to all the individuals involved in planning and implementing Grand Forks’ Canada Day celebration.

Editor:

Congratulations should go out to all the hard-working individuals involved in planning and implementing Grand Forks’ Canada Day celebration.

This massive undertaking seemed to go off without a hitch.

The parade was well worth seeing and kudos should go out to all those involved in organizing the parade and the participants.

My only criticism is why were the metal bleachers at Gyro Park placed in the hot 100-degree sun?

The audience did not use the bleachers because they were just too hot.

A better plan would have been to place these seats in the shade.
