Medical tent provides well-rounded care to Sonshine


WILLMAR - While the first aid tent's main purpose at Sonshine Music Festival is to take care of any sick or injured attendees, the tent's 179 volunteers also use this week as a chance to catch up with colleagues.

Willmar Ambulance Service and Rice Memorial Hospital of Willmar are the main providers at the tent, but medical professionals from Mankato, the Twin Cities and Fargo, N.D., all bring in various equipment needed to ensure Sonshiners have the care they need.
