Thank you to Fire Chief Mark Morse, fire fighters Amy Britain, Mike Dertinger, Mike Dressel, Brandon Kolesar, Randy Sorensen, Steve Wert and Carver Co Sheriff Graham Schultz who gave their time and expertise at the event. Thank you also to the candidates for Miss Waconia who volunteered —Carissa Bakke, Jeni Haler, Caitlin Overby, Sybil Rosenan, Ashley Sukhu and Madi Theis. With everyone’s help, it was a successful and fun community event.
