LETTER: Thumbs down to City of Grand Forks for lack of fall fair float

To the citizens of Grand Forks and the participants in the Grand Forks and District Fall Fair Parade, I offer two thumbs up to all.

Editor:

To the citizens of Grand Forks, the area and the participants in the Grand Forks and District Fall Fair Parade, I offer two thumbs up to all.

Of special note were the participants from out-of-town, the Shriners and Kelowna’s “Spirit of the Lake” float.

To the City of Grand Forks’ council, two thumbs down for not bothering to participate, other than to hitch a ride on other floats.

Is it too much to expect the city to participate in an event that is trying to grow and promotes Grand Forks and area?

I hope not and I would expect a better showing next year.
