To the editor:
The First State Bank Firecracker 5K was once again on July 4. This year, we had great weather and turnout. Two hundred twenty-three runners and walkers completed the race. The kids fun run was also held. There were runners from 15 states with the farthest being from Alaska.
We would like to thank major contributors First State Bank, North Central Iowa Regional Sports Authority, Hy-Vee, Fareway, the ambulance service, Webster City Recreation Department, Daily Freeman-Journal, KQWC, Rod Hanus, Linda Moenck and Ted Williams from Sports World.
As special thank you goes to the Webster City Cross Country families who volunteer to make this event run smoothly.
