I would like to thank the people who worked on the walking tour, video, and other things at the 125th celebration. They were just great and so much work had to be done to get the end result. We enjoyed the day.

Inspiring Message - Advice to Young People and Cancer Survivors.
Never Give up! Don't be a quitter for you only defeat yourself.
I just received by first degree black belt in karate at the age of 75 years old. I received my degree at the Convention Center in downtown Minneapolis on March 7.
I am also a cancer survivor, surviving three major cancers: prostate, colon and bladder. I was fortunate to never have had to receive chemo or radiation treatments with any of the cancers. There is life even after being diagnosed with cancer. I am living proof three times over. I have been cancer free for 16 years and am cancer free today.
I hope you will follow my advice as I am living proof today. I am now going for my second degree black belt training at Dojo Karate in Monticello.
I would like to thank everyone who made my 100th birthday such a special occasion - everyone at the Maple Manor who came to my birthday luncheon and all my friends and relatives who attended my open house at the Legion Club. I so appreciate all the cards, presents and good wishes. It's a day I'll never forget.
