Newsletter - January, 1984
It is a pleasure to hear from so many of you at Christmas. We hope you had a joyous holiday. Ours was very cold, but happy. We wish you all the very best for 1984.
Before we get too far into 1984, we'd like to thank each of you for making the summer of '83 both enjoyable and rewarding. There are memories of excited children and their big fish, a bumper crop of blueberries, a new bridge for the nature trail, pink flamingoes in front of Balsam Fir, fireworks on the Fourth of July, exceptionally warm weather and the return visits of friends, both old and new.
All continues to be well for our family. Sue and John are now living in Lacrosse, Wisconsin, as John continues to work with Radisson Hotels. They are happy there in a hundred-year-old farmhouse. Jody is in her junior year at Ithaca College still pursuing a career with her French horn. She is definitely looking forward to the summer at White Birch Village after spending the last one away. Carrie is enjoying her senior year in high school, but eagerly anticipating graduation in June. Brad has reached that coveted status associated with a driver's license.
We are back in Rockford for the winter, but continue to spend time at our favorite spot on White Birch Lake. Thanksgiving and New Year's saw us here along with family and friends. Work continues while we are away and there have been some exciting changes in the lodge.
All is in preparation for another summer of vacation times and we look forward to seeing you.
Our best until then.
