To the Editor,
As a resident of Emmet County and Estherville, I feel the Halloween parties are a great thing, which the association provides. But according to my knowledge these parties were only for children in the ELC School District. I feel that is wrong! We choose to open enroll our children to another district, but live in the city of Estherville which we pay taxes and shop locally. Our children were not upset about these, however the point is Emmet County resident should be able to attend. I guess if they continue holding these parties, maybe they should consider making this available to Emmet County residents. And if it isn't then maybe the parties shouldn't be held. That would be a very sad situation since there is not a lot of option s in Estherville for young children and teens to do. In closing I believe as a resident of Estherville and Emmet County they should reconsider who is able to attend these parties for area youth.
