Letters Vermillion Beautiful grateful for help
To the editor:
Vermillion Beautiful, Inc. is so grateful to all those who helped make last Saturday's "Operation Pride" such a success. What a great job!
We never could have done it without the help (and muscles!) of the USD Coyote football squad, the coaching staff, and the leadership of head coach John Austin.
The clean up went so smoothly because of the organizational skills and initiative of Phyllis Packard, director of Solid Waste, and her department. And with the generous gift from Norwest/Wells Fargo Bank, and president Douglas Boe's enthusiastic support we were able to offer Operation Pride as a free service.
Thanks also to the USD Foundation's Ted Muenster for initiating and helping coordinate the project.
We also appreciate the generous support of the Vermillion Chamber of Commerce, Coldwell Banker Realty, Century 21 French Real Estate, Culhane Communications, Herren-Schempp Building Supply, The Index, Jones' Food Center, The USD Greek community and The University of South Dakota.
Thanks also to all the Vermillion householders who took the time and trouble to do their part to help clean up our wonderful city.
With grateful thanks,
Judy Clark, President
Vermillion Beautiful, Inc.
Thanks for program on one-room schools
To the editor:
I had the wonderful opportunity to attend the program on the "One Room Schoolhouse" at the W.H. Over Museum on Saturday, April 29.
I would like to thank everyone involved in the presentation, planning, and execution of this piece of work. It was wonderful.
South Dakota rural school children should be proud of the education they received in rural schools across South Dakota over the years. Rural school teachers worked very hard to provide the best education possible for their children, and parents in rural school communities should be praised for supporting their rural schools for as long as possible.
