I haven't been able to keep up with the Hiawatha news this past year because of the serious illness of my husband. I have taken care of him myself, so I haven't had much time for my computer. Fortunately he is better now.
I was so happy to find the picture of my sister, Nadine Gleason (Babbel), and the third and fourth grades she taught in Hiawatha when she was young. I didn't have this picture of her.
I was also very sad to learn of Carma Rae Allred's passing away. I send my sympathy to her family. I remember her as a very beautiful little girl.
I enjoy the pictures you have of Hiawatha Day and the Hiawatha breakfasts. I still recognize a lot of the people. I moved away from Hiawatha to New York State when I started the 9th grade, but Hiawatha remains in my memory and I thank you for your wonderful site.

Wallace, I only have 30 Hiawatha Memories books left. I'd like to make sure everyone from Hiawatha has a chance to get one. Would you put it on your Hiawatha Blogger page so that those that may not know of it can know it is available. They can write me at: Eldon Miller, 819 Castle Gate Circle, Helper, Ut.,84526. The postage is $2.77 and the book is $15.00. The way they are going I may have to do a 2nd printing. Keep up the good work. You are doing a great service.
