Thursday, June 23, 2011  'mball, MN Cards of Than00 We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the mem- bers of the Kimball and South Haven communities, and to the St. Cloud VA Adult Day Care for their thoughtfulness and compas- sion at the time of Norman Han- sen's death. He called the Kim- Community We wish to thank all of our fam- ily, friends, and neighbors who joined with us on the 18th of June to help us celebrate our 50th wed- ding anniversary. A special thank-you to Roger and Donna Lang, who acted as host and hostess, and to our chil- dren Pam Mozena and family, Jim and Penny Strodtman and family, Dale Mozena and Kayla, and Doug and Kari Schaefer and sons. They ball area his home for more than Konz 40 years, and we appreciated that he was surrounded by people who were caring and supportive. Your prayers and expressions of sympa- thy have comforted us. Thank you. Norm Hansen's family I would like to extend a great big THANK YOU to all the Kimball teaching staff for such a wonder- ful retirement party. I know it was a lot of work, especially at such a busy time of year, but it sure was fun and so very much appreciated. The "special bell" I received is such a beautiful treasure, remem- bering all my wonderful years at Kimball Elementary. The scrap book is amazing. I want to THANK everyone who took time to attend the party (it was so great to see you) and those who were unable to attend, I appreciate your thoughts. THANK YOU for all the wonder- ful cards, lovely notes and for all the gifts. I so appreciate every- thing. The send off in the Kimball Fire Truck we received on the last student day with all the students, planned and executed a special day for us. We were pleased to see every- one who attended but espe- cially those who travelled a dis- tance. The cousins from Iowa, the Lebecks, the Mozinas, and the Wrights. Thank you all for making a very special day for us. Dean and Karen Mozena staff, and some families watch- ing was such a surprise and so very special-THANK YOU Kelly. It really was wonderful. WOW- it is no wonder that it is hard to retire from such a wonderful sup- portive group of students, staff, and families that we have in our district. I will surely miss it all. It has been an honor and joy to be a part of the wonderful children's lives and their families since 1971. It has been great working with all the amazing teachers and staff at Kimball Elementary. Our district has such great families and I look forward to continue watching the children grow. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU so very much, Mrs. Dode Klein Fort Ridgely Civil Nominations sought War presentation for grand marshal Minnesota and the Civil War Sunday, June 26, historian Stephen Osman will present a Powerpoint program about the Minnesota volunteers who fought in the Civil War.
