Yesterday we had the pleasure of celebrating Joel and the day he quit his job at the newspaper to come home and farm full-time in 1982. It was a day full of laughing and tears!
Several of us ran around the farm at 5:00 am, tying balloons on everything he would come across in his day – the mailbox, the chainsaw, the four-wheeler….
In the evening, we celebrated with a simple cookout in front of the sales building. We made toasts to Joel, his wife Teresa and mother Lucille, and then presented him with the book of well-wishes that many of you contributed to on our Facebook page. More happy tears followed! It was a memorable day for all of us.
