Thank you to the members of First Lutheran for honoring my 60 years as choir director with the special float in the July 4th parade. Thank you to the church staff and all others for the great job with the decorations.. And I thank those choir members and others who rode on the float with us. I want you to know 60 years have gone so fast...when I’ve been enjoying so much.

Just a “THANK YOU” is not adequate to First Lutheran, the Northwood community, and others for the most wonderful, unexpected, beyond generous gift of a trip to Norway! WOW!! We are amazed, yet humbled, and will enjoy every minute of all the many Scandinavian sights and experiences. We thank Sharly Nestor for arranging our trip and accompanying us as our personal “tour guide”.

We feel so blessed and may God bless each of you.
