Letter to the Editor 2-7-14

Dear Editor,
 On behalf of the Chopper's baseball teams, we would like to thank everyone for attending our Father/Daughter banquet. Without your support, it would not be possible. The girls have such a memorable time while the players experience what it takes to be gentlemen.
 We would like to thank Tony Dong with Martinelli's for the food, Seifert's Jewelry for the donation for our raffle prize, Emmet Rudolph for his awesome DJ services and Rod's Food Store for their donations.
 The money that was raised through our fundraising efforts is used for equipment, supplies, uniforms and tournament entrance fees. The Chopper's teams look forward to hosting this event and are thankful to the past Cloud County Choppers teams for initiating the event seven years ago and helping us to make it an annual event for our community.

With sincere appreciation,
Concordia Chopper's Baseball 10U Team
Charity Brown
Cloud County Chopper's 12U Team
