Vopleus benefit turnout appreciated
This little newspaper could not hold all the Thank You's and gratitude that came in from Don and Myra Vopleus and family after the benefit dinner held at the Thurman Town Hall on Saturday March 20. The Vopleus family thanks everyone who in anyway helped in putting this event together, they appreciate all the time and effort that made this possible. Thanks go out to all the county workers, to so many of the Vopleus' friends who turned out, to their good neighbors and to those who traveled so far to attend. With the economy so bad at this time, the hearts of those who came out were bigger than life and everything was so well organized. They can not thank you all enough for all that was done for their family.
Don is slowly improving, day by day, after the tree accident on Nov. 25. The family wishes to also express thanks for the many cards and prayers and for keeping them in your daily prayers.
