Letter to the editor: July 30, 2014

 

Dear Editor:
After reading your article in the July 23 edition of the Maple Lake Messenger regarding the Maple Lake Lions and charitable gambling in Minnesota, I wanted to add my two cents. First, thank you to the paper for highlighting all the wonderful causes supported by the Maple Lake Lions, which includes True Friends Camp Courage and Camp Friendship. It is important that the public understand that charitable gambling profits are essential to local community needs. Funds raised stay close to home, benefiting people and projects we know and identify with on a personal level. I am so glad your paper clarifies how the different forms of gambling supports different kinds of needs in our state. We as an organization depend heavily on charitable gambling dollars.
Secondly, thank you to the Maple Lake Lions for what they do for True Friends camps and for how they make our communities a better place to live and work as a whole. You guys rock!
Alison Sherman, Development Officer, True Friends
