Thank you for the ‘remarkable act of kindness’

Dear Editor:

I appreciated the “2012 Year End Review” and the pictures of when and where they happened in 2012.

I was born and raised in the Cambridge-Isanti area and attended a one-room country (brick) school house in Dist. #35 named Kienitz School in Bradford Township.

I  graduated from Cambridge High School on May 29, 1947. After graduating, I worked at General Mills, Inc. at Coupon Service.

I now live in the Ham Lake area and enjoy the hometown paper a lot. I have lived in Ham Lake area since February 1958. It is a growing area but still country-like. Cambridge is still my hometown.

A special thanks to the person or persons responsible for replacing the 200 bronze star markers for our veterans. This was remarkable “random act of kindness.” Also thank you to the Girl and Boy Scouts who helped replace each one. My brother John (Larson) is buried there and his marker was one of those replaced. It was appreciated so much.

Reading about the Historical Society building being rebuilt was very good news. The more things change, the more they stay the same. Thanks again.
