Letter to the Editor

A great start to the year

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

On behalf of the faculty and staff of the Spirit Lake Community School District, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Spirit Lake Chamber of Commerce and its membership for once again providing a wonderful lunch and opportunity to connect with one another at the beginning of the school year.

The creative table decorations and the wonderful lunch, plus the words of encouragement as we embark on a new year were very much appreciated. Past graduate, Sara Hummel sang so beautifully to us, what a treat that was!

Thanks also to Jeff Herzberg for his address. A big thank you to Blain Andera and his staff and also to Chad McKeen and his staff for the work they do to make this possible. Also, the custodial staff at Spirit Lake need to be recognized for all the set up in the Sami Center lobby.

There is always excitement in the air at the the beginning of the school year and this year is no different. The year is off and running and things are moving in a very positive way. The Chamber luncheon is always a great way to kick off the year and again, we thank you for all of the time and energy put in to making this event happen.

Respectfully submitted,

Elaine Greer
