Lot of people helped make Music Fest

To the Editor:
I would like to express my appreciation to everyone who helped make the Polka Lovers Klub of America 2015 Music Fest a huge success.
First, to all of you who attended; we had people from various states, including Arizona, California, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, Nebraska, South Dakota, Wisconsin; even a couple from Australia.
Dancers commented on the wonderful dance floor we have at the PlaMor Ballroom.
We are especially appreciative of the many city of Glencoe people who helped us, including Chief Jim Raiter and the police department; Barbara Woida, Chamber president, with her many helpful suggestions and radio announcements of the event; Administrator Mark Larson and Hannah Huttner-Hallahan, for the impressive display of music fest information on the City Center information sign; and Mayor Randy Wilson, for the welcoming address on Saturday. All Polka Lovers of America members nationwide wish to thank Mayor Wilson for his great welcome to the city of Glencoe.
There also were numerous businesses in the community who assisted with the event.
Hopefully, you were able to attend this event; if not, plans are to hold the Music Fest in Glencoe on Aug. 5-7, 2016.
In an unrelated item, I would also like to thank the many business owners who sponsor the beautiful hanging plants that we have in the city of Glencoe, and the many volunteers who are awake while many of us are still sleeping, for keeping the flowers watered and beautiful.
