Letter: Tilson dinner a success
The Alex Tilson spaghetti dinner was a real success. Alex was amazed at the outpouring of well-wishers that attended the spaghetti dinner. We are very grateful to our many friends and coworkers for all their hard work and support. We would also like to convey great thanks to the following vendors for their donations to this function: The American Legion of St. Paul Park, Bonngard's Family Meats, Broadway Bar and Grill, Carbone's Pizza of St. Paul Park, Hastings Dairy, McDonald's of Cottage Grove, Park Café, Stone Soup, SuperMom's, Tinucci's and Von Hanson's Meats. It has been a tough six months for our family and I would like to take this opportunity to give a special thanks to the American Legion of St. Paul Park. They have donated the use of their facility not only for the spaghetti dinner by for my daughter Kristine's funeral luncheon and for my mother Helen Klein's funeral luncheon. I would also like to thank the Bulletin License Center and Gary Spooner for donating 100 thank-you cards for us to use for the Kristine Larson Memorial fund at Anchor Bank in St. Paul Park. Living in such a kind and caring community reminds me that all is not lost and there is good in this world. We are deeply grateful for everyone's kindness!
