Dear Editor,

To all of our friends and relatives in the Kalona and Wellman area. We send you greetings from our home at Bonell Good Samaritan Village in Greeley, Colorado. We moved here in the Regency Heritage apartment Bldg. for independent living in the summer of 1998. We enjoy it very much.

I visit Homer Yoder, the son of Jeff Yoder the butcher. Homer lives here in the nursing home. Homer and I have many visits regarding the times we lived in that area. He knew my father, Noah G. Yoder, and I knew his father, Jeff, but we never knew each other before we lived here at Bonell.

We see Bob Schlabaugh quite often, as well as his brother, John. We have become acquainted with their families throughout the years.

How proud we were to watch cousin Don Showalter’s son, Don, guide the west team of the McDonald’s All-American Basketball game in Ames on the 24 of March. Of course we are just as proud of all of our Yoder and Showalter cousins.

I enjoy hearing from my old friend and school-mate at good old Hickory Grove School, George N. Yoder. We also keep in close touch with our good friend of so many years, Laurene (Mrs. Don) Schlabaugh.

The first thing I read in your good paper is the obituary column to see who has left this world for a better place. Then I read Mark Swartzendruber’s column, then the Marek page for some good laughs. After that, I read the news of the week. Your paper keeps me in touch with my youth, for which I thank you.

Sincerely,

George G. Yoder
