Letters La Leche League thanks supporters

To the editor:

The members of Vermillion La Leche League would like to thank all of the following supporters of our Second Annual World Walk for Breastfeeding which took place on Aug. 7 at Prentis Park:

Major benefactors: Vermillion Medical Clinic, $50, Dr. Jolynn Bugbee, $50, Davis Pharmacy, $25 and Dr. Jon Flom, $25.

Your concern about the health of our community and awareness of the need for additional breastfeeding resources deserves outstanding recognition. Special thanks to Hy-Vee for the delicious muffins and fruit and Jones' Food Center for the juice, water and paper goods at our brunch.

Also, thanks to KVHT (Culhane Communications) and The Plain Talk for the publicity. Thank you to The Vermillion Public Library for acknowledging World Breastfeeding Week by allowing us to put up a display surrounding the theme: "Breastfeeding: Education for Life."

The businesses above and many other friends and family members who sponsored our walkers helped to make our walk a huge success! We were able to achieve all our goals. We will now be able to assist Yankton in starting their own LLL group in the near future. Thanks again to everyone!

Vermillion La Leche League Family reunion was success

To the editor:

The Lee and Amy Millage family reunion was hosted August 20-22 by the Betty (Millage) Jensen family, held at the Erickson farm. Thanks to Greg, Deb and daughters for the great hospitality and help.

Now, the grandmas and grandpas, the aunts and uncles,

their six children were there.

Your cousins, our cousins, my cousins, "Heavens sakes!"

there were cousins everywhere.

A loud ovation, a rah, rah, rah! for Gary and

Teri Jo Jensen for a job, well done, as the host

and hostess with the mostest-Great ideas, to

entertain all with a weekend of fun.

Greg's annual Union Park "Hey ride" is always a

treat, actually more like a tractor pull, when climbing

that hill. He first shifted gears, came to a halt,

and then, came and shifted us.

(a Millage "clan") overfill.

Golf, gifts, lots of gab, even a funny clown, we had.

Hot off the grill, bar-b-q'ed ribs and Gary's own

"specialty" chicken, and oodles and oodles of delicious fixens.

p.s. Behind the fun and laughter a hidden sadness,

sometimes appears, here and there a teardrop falls.

(and then it goes away)

When we reminisce about

the four loved ones we've lost within the last two years.

(We have all, so missed them here today.) (Ervin too)
