Great to see support

To the Editor:

Fairmont Area Football Association would like to thank the communities and fans of Fairmont and Dassel Cokato for their generosity at the Sept. 13 football game between the Cardinals and the Chargers.

That night, we asked the communities to help raise funds for Luke Nelson and his family. Luke, who plays for Dassel Cokato, was injured during a football game Sept. 6, and was recovering at Hennepin County Medical Center. Together, we raised $670 for the family.

Fairmont players also were given an football for them to autograph and present to Luke. Our thoughts and prayers are still with Luke and his family as he continues to recover.

Thank you again for making us a proud, caring, supportive community.

Brian Roggow, chairman
