Letter to the Editor 3-30

Dear Editor,
I would like to thank the North Central Kansas area for their support on the recent fundraising efforts for the NCK Honor Flight. We are finalizing our travel plans for the trip, May 29-30, and I know that all of the WW II Veterans truly appreciate the generosity shown by individuals, civic groups, and businesses in the area to raise money for their trip.
Thank you to Kearn Auction for the use of your facility, your donation of commission, and your many hours to make the Benefit Auction such a success: Dannie, Deborah, Deb, Jim, Donnie, Sharon, Tabitha, Ricky, Scott, Sherry and Kevin.
Thank you to individuals and businesses who donated items or added items to this auction: Womack Sunshine Ford, Butch Thrash, Dannie Kearn, Ricky Kearn, Donnie Kearn, Charles Westin, Al Callaway, Ron Elniff, Linda LeClair, Dean Hardaway, Mortimer Family, Sunset Home, Noel Hanson, Jordan Budreau, Dale & Mary Garlow, Stacey Crum, Ralph Anderson, Tom Walker, Charles Johnson, Spencer Brown, USD 333 and any others I may have inadvertently missed.
Thank you to our media outlets for the advertising: Concordia Blade-Empire, KNCK Radio, and those in Minneapolis, Beloit and Belleville.
