Team/Community Celebration in Rolfe, Iowa: Priceless


Words cannot express how phenomenal this celebration weekend was in Rolfe. While I’ve received many very, very gratifying thank-yous, those same thank-yous go to the team and those in the Rolfe-and-beyond community who helped make the day/evening a success by volunteering their elbow grease, time and expertise, by contributing funds, by attending AND by offering their enthusiasm. Absolutely priceless.

I’m unwinding, sort of. There’s so much I want to say, although, I don’t know if I will say much because words seem so inadequate. Whatever I post about the weekend might take a little while. Perhaps check back in a week or two. Hopefully I’ll have something posted by then.

For certain, by Friday of this week I’ll post video of more Rolfe girls’ games from the early ’70s, and maybe even a Rolfe boys’ game or two.

    Kathy: It was so much fun. I’m needing to have a reality check now of life being back to “normal.” I enjoy “normal” but I’m going to ease into it! My only regret is that I didn’t have much time to talk with people individually. But within the time that we all (including the community) were together, I wouldn’t have wanted to give up any of that larger group time. It was all so special. I think Bill and I are just going to need to take some road trips and get that “individual” time.
