Thank you for a special celebration

Dear Editor:

I would like to take this moment to thank all the individuals and groups who so graciously gave their time and efforts to make my honor day successful. It was one of the most pleasant memories I have ever experienced. I do not have the space to name all the wonderful people who took part in the day, but I do want to express my gratitude to everyone for making the day a memory I shall cherish forever.

Special mention must be given to committee members Lois Tureen, George Larson, Howard Arneson and Bob Salo who spent hours and hours to organize such an undertaking.

To the speakers who represented my life at Cambridge. Their efforts brought tearful and happy thoughts to myself and many others in attendance.

To the singers who sang notes in songs that revealed feelings, not only to myself, but to a large portion of those in attendance as well. All were touched by the fine quality and message of the music.

To the local newspapers that kept us informed about this special event.

To Jon Nystrom and Bob Salo for making our picture show come alive with the power point and video of the program. It made for a lasting experience.

To Paul Carlson, Larry Gustafson, and Curt Olson for making 1958 basketball memories live again with their delightful comments.

To Herman’s Bakery and the dessert committee for the wonderful treats.

Yes, I could go on and on, but I know you have the story and what a story it was! So—to all of you I can only say, “thanks for the memories.” As John Denver would say, “It was good to be back home again!”
