I had almost decided not to subscribe to the Pelican Rapids Press; but here I am subscribing once more.

We first subscribed to the Press in 1955. Our daughter was entering second grade in Pelican Rapids. Our country school closed after she had finished first grade.

My husband and I lived in Tansem township, south of Rollog for 51 years. Our four children graduated from Pelican Rapids High School. My husband, Orrie Gilbertson, worked at the Turkey Plant for 22 years. We moved to Pelican Rapids in 1999 and to assisted living in 2014. He passed away December 16, 2016.

We/I have had a continuous subscription to the Press for 63 years.

My 91st birthday is coming up in September. Many memories.
