On behalf of the city of Cloquet, I would like to thank the Cloquet Fourth of July Celebration Committee and the many sponsors and contributors who helped make this year’s celebration a success. The community has had a long history of holding one of the best celebrations in northeastern Minnesota, thanks to a strong core group of volunteers.
In 2013 this volunteer committee came together again and was able to meet the high standards and the traditions set previously and once again put together a fabulous day for our residents and community. The weather was unbelievable this year with a lot of sunshine. It was awesome to drive around town and see so much community activity from the parade, 5K run, car show, activities at both Pinehurst and Veterans parks and, of course, the fireworks.
An event like this cannot happen without strong community volunteerism. I encourage anyone else who enjoyed the day to consider giving some of your time and energy to this committee in the future.
So, hats off to the volunteers and sponsors for your hard work and dedication to once again bring us a great Fourth of July celebration in 2013!
