The citizens of northwest Iowa,
I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to the citizens and businesses of northwest Iowa.
Each year, the Pony Express Riders of Iowa ask for and receive donations of many kinds for the different activities we hold to raise money for Easter Seals Camp Sunnyside. Each year, I am amazed at the outpouring of money, gifts and donations that are given to the Pony Express Riders. These donations are given at times when there are many other benefits happening. Business owners and individuals donate over and over, much to my amazement.
This year, in three events, we earned over $5000! These events were Palo Alto County events. We will still be raising money through the statewide ATV ticket sale. All monies collected will be donated to Camp Sunnyside on Easter Weekend.
Thanks to the generosity of the citizens of northwest Iowa, we will be able to help support Camp Sunnyside again this year in a fashion befitting our Iowa heritage!
