Community deserves the band
To the editor:
The West Side Veterans Council is a volunteer group of local veterans who volunteer their time without compensation to organize three major events in Iron River every year. The Memorial Day parade, the 4th of July parade and the 4th of July fireworks display. The cost of these events is about $7,000-$8,000 for the cost of fireworks and $500-$800 for float prizes in the 4th of July parade. These funds are raised every year through solicitation.
