MFD donates to Erika Nelson benefit
Merrill Firefighter Kyle Banaszak presents a $1,000 check to Dave Nelson on behalf of the Merrill Firefighters Charities. Dave and his wife Dawn are organizing a benefit for their daughter Erika Nelson Liebert. In January, the Nelsons lost their 23-year-old daughter Kathyrn to cancer and in March their 33-year-old daughter Erika was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer. The benefit is being held to help with the financial needs of the treatments that Erika is receiving. The benefit will be held Aug. 23 at the Town of Merrill Town Hall starting at 3 p.m. Tickets are $25 each which includes one ticket for a chance to win an Ariens snowblower, food, beverages and music by America's Party Band which starts at 8 p.m. For more information on where to get tickets or how you can help, please contact Dave Nelson at 715-409-9509.
