15 this preparation showed as Clayton gave is speech before the gath- ered voting delegates. This year, there were eleven officer candidates running for the seven officer positions. After the election process ear- . ly Friday morning, Clayton had to wait until 11:30pm Friday night to find out the results of the counted ballots. As he opened the results it was clear that, for the second year in a row, Mt. Pulaski would have an officer serving on the State Executive Council! His term began at ft. ,q the installation of officers on Saturday morning and will run until he " has planned and carried out his own State Conference next year. This June, the officers will gather together for training and will participate in an interview process and give another speech in order to determine which office they will serve ".m for the year. Serving as a State Officer for FCCLA is an incredible opportunity and one that Mt. Pulaski , FCCLA is lucky to extend to two students in two consecutive years. I would personally like to congratulate all of the students on their .,t this year! I would also like to congratulate Cady on plan- to ning an excellent conference and Clayton on the amazing accom- o plishment of being elected to serve this year. I am constantly amazed I,.i  at the incredibly high caliber of student present as Mt. Pulaski High School. The entire community should be proud of the way they have been represented. On April 23rd, the Mt. Pulaski FCCLA will be hosting their sec- ond annual Recognition Night for student members, parents, and business partners. Each of' these members will be recognized for their service to the organization and I am sure that they would ap-- preciate the presence of their fellow members, families, and business partners.

My name is Kara Johnson and I reside in Mount Pulaski, IL. My daughter, who is 3 years old, drew a picture for our mail carrier and left it in the mailbox on April 11. Our usual mall car- tier had the afternoon off, and another carrier named Deanna, delivered our mail that day. Deanna not only took the drawing and gave it to our regular mail carrier, she left a note addressed to my daughter that read: "Dear Grace, Your usual mailman, Tim, had the af- ternoon off today. Don't worry, though. I will take your beautiful picture back to our office and make sure he gets it!!! Your friend Dean- na the Mail Lady" I cannot tell you how delighted my daugh- ter was to find this note in the mailbox.
