Volunteers make the difference

With the Fourth of July festivities behind us and Summerfest around the corner, followed quickly by the Polk County Fair and the Great American Eclipse celebrations and parties, we want to take a moment to thank the volunteers that make it all happen.

Be safe this holiday
