For those who want to join us on the beach at Lake Superior for sunset, we will start moving about 8:00. Actual sunset is 9:27. We will spread some ashes around that time, weather and wind permitting.

Thank you in advance to everyone who offered to help. Many hands makes for light work for everyone. We all know and appreciate that.

Thank you in advance to the Waunakee Game Club for being in charge of the bar.

Set up and tear down will be led by Janine Thull, Jeff Richter, Teri Nelles Cain and Brendan Cain. I ordered 2 big tents, chairs and tables, so we will look to our leadership as to when we will be setting those up. :)

I established a scholarship to honor Ruth at Front Range Community College where she ended her working career. As you may know, she was a grant manager at the college. FRCC was the lead college of 8 in the State that received a $25 million dollar scholarship from the federal government. Ruth was the lead manager. At the end of 5 years she returned only $100 to the feds. No small feat at all. She touched many students lives with her behind the scenes work. The program has proven to be so popular that they are moving the location and doubling it's size. She got it all started. The criteria I set for the scholarship was that it is for the machining program only, and the preference is to give the scholarship to women entering the program. Should you like to add to my contribution, please follow this link then click on the Annual Fund drop down and Ruth's name is at the bottom of the list. https://www.frontrange.edu/about-frcc/frcc-foundation/giving/give-to-front-range-community-college
