Esko Fun Days honors Liupakka

Residents turned out in large numbers for many of this year’s Esko Fun Days events, according to Community Ed director Michele Carlson.

“I think people were excited to get back together,” she said. “We had a great turnout — I think there were close to 500 people at the park and a hundred at the street dance.”

The winner of the 2021 Davis Helberg Community Impact Award is Frank Liupakka. “Frank is a pillar of the community,” Carlson said.
