Upp*r D*s Jnn. C/ucyfc Children Doing Just Fine, Fort Dodge Mrs. J. B. Harris, Jr., Algona, who was very active in collecting funds for the Ciucyk children of Fort Dodge after a tragic mishap killed the parents a couple of years ago in a mishap near St. Joe, received notes from the children recently, thanking her for Christmas gifts which were sent to them. The children are making their home with a Fort Dodge family, and apparently are doing just fine, according to Mrs. Harris. The gifts were purchased with money from the original fund, which was handled by the Iowa State Bank here. After receiving the notes, Mrs. Harris was certain that persons and organizations that donated to the fund would be interested in learning about the children. Here are the notes : "I want to thank you and all the nice people of Algona who donated money toward our Christmas presents. I got a Magic Cool Oven set. It really makes cakes. I had a very nice Christmas. Susie can't write, so she thanks you for her bike. It's been very cold so she wasn't able to ride it. Yours truly, Krista Ciucyk." "Thank you for the race set. Pretty soon I am going to put the race set on a piece of cardwood and around the track. I am going to put trees around the track. Yours truly, Werner Ciucyk." The lady in whose home the three children are living also enclosed a note saying the children are fine and happy and that they had a very happy holiday. It will be gratifying to everyone to donated money to the Ciucyk fund to know they have helped make the children happy after the tragedy which disrupted their lives.
