The dance was a big success because of the many volunteers who helped with the various aspects of getting the dance together. Special thanks to the staff and students at Roncalli High School. Too, many businesses were gracious enough to give donations. Thank you all again for helping make the spring dance a special evening for our special people. Pat Neuenfeldt, Manitowoc Book sale earns library funds In conjunction with the Lester Public Library, the Friends of the Lester Public Library held a book sale and silent auction of used computers in April.

Thanks to all who made it a success, including the staff members who are always willing to help with organization and publicity, the volunteers who helped with moving and selling the books (we had more volunteers than jobs!) and those patrons who donated, purchased and gave many books a new home. Linda Larsen, Friends of the Lester Public Library, Manitowoc Program shared Shoto history Our most cordial and sincere thank you to Deborah Kornely Walesh for preparing and presenting a truly outstanding program at the recent quarterly meeting of the Two Rivers Historical Society. Deborah assembled a large number of people of all ages to present "The History of Shoto." The history was presented in a series of entertaining skits with Pat Litersky Kohlman doing the narration. The responsive overflow crowd found that learning local history can fun. A huge vote of appreciation to all the actors and actresses.

Gordon Sievert presented a $500 check from Aid Association for Lutheran in support of the society's Washington's Birthday celebration fund-raiser, chaired by Delores Carron, who gratefully accepted the donation. Free refreshments and snacks donated by society volunteers and visiting were enjoyed by an exuberant crowd.

Museum's a special treasure While visiting my favorite watering hold this past winter, one of my younger friends asked me if it would be all right to solicit funds to have my named added to one of the Manitowoc-built submarine plaques on the riverwalk. I was born and raised in Manitowoc, enlisted in the Navy in 1943 and served on the USS Plaice during five war patrols. I told Dave Mueller and Janine Loritz that I would be honored to receive such a gift. Shortly thereafter, the money was collected, with the lion's share of the money donated by tavern owner Lee Van Deurzen. I have shared many memories with three generations to the Van Deurzen family, and now the youngest thought so much of my service to this great country that a plaque now bears my name for all passers-by to see on the memorial of the USS Guavina.

Throughout the years, I have dedicated many volunteer hours to the Wisconsin Maritime Museum. I served on the Board of Trustees, talked to school groups, gave submarine tours, was present for many memorial ceremonies and even offered my brat, burger and barbecue expertise for the Riverwalk Festival. The museum is a special place for submariners like myself, and I hope that parents take their children there to teach them about naval history. It's a place like this that makes you proud to be an American. It is refreshing to know that young people do understand and appreciate the sacrifices made by the people who have fought in our country's wars.

I would like to thank everyone who made this plaque possible. Take a walk on the riverwalk by the Maritime Museum and see all the names of the submariners and their families on the Manitowoc-built submarine plaques. Del Olson, Manitowoc Dance was a great success The 30th annual spring dance sponsored by the Association for the Developmentally Disabled was held April 20 at Roncalli High School. Approximately 250 to 300 special people attended. The theme this year was western, with bandannas and badges handed out.

The students from the LaSallian Youth Group at Roncalli helped with decorating in the morning, and in the evening they helped with greeting people, dancing and keeping the food and bev-erages flowing. The great music was by the band Chain Reaction.
