BIRTHDAY CARD SHOWER
Gladys Boeckner is turning 80 on July 20. We thought it would be nice to remember this kind and caring lady with a card shower. We are asking former students, staff, parents, and community members to send her a card. If you could include a memory, that would be wonderful. Spread the word to your classmates and to your children, and have them spread the word to their classmates. Thank you!
