To the editor:

I read the article in The Leader about raising the price for ice cream licenses. I was wondering if anyone was collecting signatures for a petition or doing any kind of fundraising for the Veterans who this impacts? I'm truly appalled by this and wanted to at the very least offer my signature (as well as my family's names) on a petition.
