To the editor:

Appreciation to all who braved the heat for the 11th Annual Convoy For Kids Truck Show, held on Saturday, June 16, 2018.

We had a great day, even with the heat. Forty-four trucks were in attendance.

We are grateful to all of our sponsors and all who gave to St. Judeís. Appreciation also to the Mason City Christian Church for hosting the Light The Night Party as a prelude to our firework show. Special appreciation to Bob Harris for the use of the field to shoot the fireworks from. To Guy Wands for all his help heading up the evening festivities. To the Mason City Police and Fire Department for all your assistance keeping everything safe.

We would also like to say how grateful we are to those that donated to the firework fund. Special appreciation to our major sponsors Hull Trucking of Mason City, Midwest Trucker Association and Mason County Transfer. We hope to keep the fireworks as an annual event for Mason City, with your help we can do this.

[to top of second column in this letter]

We hope to do other fundraisers to help in this effort and we will still have the Mason City Firework Fund account at the State Bank and National Bank. We hope you enjoyed the show and hope to see you next year on Fatherís Day weekend June 15th.

To help with these great events or help support them contact Jim Harris at 217-899-2709.
