4-TIMES-NEWS (Mt. Pulaski, Ill.) THURSDAY, DEC. 9, 1971  Gtam In Lham Home Mr. and Mrs. Ralph E. Butts had as Thanksgiving Holiday guests in their home in Latham, their son, Mr. and Mrs. R. D. Butts and children, David, Lee Ann and Darwin from Cary, Ill. On Monday, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Bostrom of Brush, Colo. and Mr. and Mrs. Albert Hook from Ft. Morgan, Colo. spent the day, accompa- nied by Mrs. Butts,visiting several Land of Lincoln historical sights. The first stop was the old Court House in Mt. Pulaski and they then visited several in Springfield. They were on their way to Allen- town, Pa. The story behind this visit is worth sharing. In July of 1957, the White- side Co., I11.4-H had an exchange trip to Morgan Co., Colo. Four boys from Newton Hurricane Hustlers Agri. 4-H Club were a- mong the 60 on the char- tered bus. Rowan Butts, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ralph E. Butts of Erie, was one of them. He spent several days in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Bostrom, Farm Bureau and Home Ext. members, and 4-H sons, Howard and Richard at Brush, Colo. They had a wonderful trip seeing the 4-H projects and sight seeing to mountains at Estes Park. Then in June of 1958, the Colorado 4-H from Morgan Co. had a trip to Morrison, Whiteside Co., Ill. to visit in the homes of the boy or girl they had entertained the year be- fore. They were treated to a picnic of Farm Bureau families and 4-H guests at White Eagle 4-H Camp near Forreston, Ill. and also a trip to Chicago, where they attended a baseball game. Of the four local boys, only the Butts and Bostrom families kept in touch. Now in 1971, they met each other and found a rich reward from being pen pals and keeping in touch through the years. There is nothing to com- pare with friends. The trick is to keep in touch by communication. - I SC.HOOL j MENUS- II MT. PULASKI CONS.
