Roses and Raspberries

A dozen roses for each of the volunteers that helped to judge our 4-H club’s speeches and demonstrations on Feb. 18.

A dozen roses for each of the volunteers that helped to judge our 4-H club’s speeches and demonstrations on Feb. 18: Anne Goyette, Mary Telfer, Ross McCoubrey, Katie Smylie, Loyd Csizmadia, and Mike Doherty. Also to the parents who timed and tabulated for us. We appreciate you taking the time to support the kids year after year. It was a great day. Thank you.

Thanks so much to my very special friend Robertine Flaspohler for sharing her time in Hawaii with me.

It was a holiday of a lifetime — one I will cherish forever. True friends are hard to find. If you have one, you are lucky.

Thanks, Robertine. And a big thank you to her husband Otto — he has to be a bachelor for two weeks.

From your good buddy,

June Kunka

A big bouquet of roses to the dedicated nurses and doctors on the second floor.

Even though they were extremely busy and short staffed, they took the time to see that our mother was comfortable in her last days. We appreciated it very much. Thank you.
