Hi Gang


BIG THANKS to Dr. Parisa Meymand who sponsored Kewpee's hamburgers and fries for lunch today at the Alumni House. Dick Peterson came empty handed. He was sent back to his car 3 times. The guys couldn't believe he came empty handed. No homemade Fudge, Key Lime Pie, Peanut Butter Cookies, Brownies, Watermelon, Candy - NOTHING !!!

Dick said he did bake Cinnamon Muffins with Apples this morning, but ate most himself.

Terry Toll brought an O & H Kringle compliments of Jim Rasmussen. Thanks to Jim as well.
