Both the regular and the bound souvenir edition that were pre- viously received have been loaned out and I want to be sure that I have an edition to keep. I spent an entire Sunday read- ing the Souvenir Edition and it brought back many memories, some of which had been half forgotten. It also contained much history and information that I had not known before. You and Mr. Beidler as well as the rest of the staff are to be high- ly complimented for putting out such an outstanding edition. I look forward to receiving the Times-News each Saturday. Al- though there are many new nam- es I enjoy reading of the people done. The Sil-Tennial edition was really a masterpiece - and took lots of work to do such a com- plete job. If you should have one of the bound editions left please send it to us and bill us for it, we would like to keep it and will gladly mail you our check.
