I was so pleasantly surprised to receive your recent Addison Times. Are you starting it up again in a smaller version? I, along with many, would be very happy to see this happen. Thank you!
I’m so happy to hear that! I’m good, thank you! I work in the Admin Office for Andy Hensley, Director of Student Services, so this is my busy time and already getting ready for next school year! Enjoy your summer break.
I so enjoyed your Memorial Day issue, which made me kick myself for not remembering to attend this always awesome service many times when my late brother was a drummer for the Shelby Community Band and also while covering it for The Shelbyville News. I particularly regret missing a very dear friend of our family, Jerri Callahan-Turner's reading of her poem. The photos were awesome too. But the enjoyment didn't stop there: I recognized so many names in the THIS DAY items, including my late sister, Tina (Weingarth) Vogel Reese, who was recognized for her spelling ability. Way to go, Sis! (Her husband, Bob Reese, delivered the keynote address at one of these same services.) Indeed a day of remembrance of those we have lost. So glad we can look forward to more of The Addison Times!
I am so thrilled when I open my inbox and find an Addison Times! Thank you for continuing to publish!
