To the Editor:
It is disappointing that Royalton’s Platte River Day, which used to be a small town fun family event, has morphed into an event shrouded by excessive drinking and drunken behavior including vomiting in an alley, broken beer bottles on the street, loud obnoxious staggering adults and at least one assault.
The saddest part of all is that numerous children and impressionable teens were present to observe such behavior. I for one will make sure that my family and I are out of town the first Saturday in August from now on. — Eric
