TSmU00,, Freeport, Illinois April 21, 1961 Dear Harry: It is with heartfelt gratitude that I write this letter to you. For five years I have considered a trip for our band to your city i and for one year I have intensely !planned it. At no time, however I did I anticipate the warm recep- tion that was extended to us at every turn. The p,-"ople of Mount Pulaski have engraved themselves in the memories of all that took the trip and have revived memor- ies to me personally. Perhaps the bus driver's volun- tary "remark to me would best define what I mean. He said, "I just told the other driver that I didn't know there were so many nice people left." And to the Band Boosters and the Methodist Church women, a hearty thank you from a very well fed and appreciative band for the tremendous chicken din- ner. This is best described I be- lieve by one of our chaperones who said, "These are not only wonderful people but they can cook. too." To you, Harry, thanks for the fine publicity, program printing, and the very thoughtfully pre- pared personally inscribed place mats and picture postcards of the Sil-Tennial and the Mt. Pulaski court house. As one child said, "Mr. Werntz, they did know we were coming." To the fine responsive audience that came to hear us play, we can only say a hearty thank you. Your warm reception to our off- erings was an experience that we will never forget. Thank you for coming.
