1973 - MV's Class Thank You Letter - April 9

Evidently there was a delay in the third grade class celebration of MV's birthday in 1973.  The class members each wrote a letter thanking Mrs. Uible for bringing the refreshments and offering insights about the treat and the event.  Class members and messages from other letters transcribed below.  All letters begin with the heading including the date, the sender's address and the greeting of Dear Mrs. Uible.  All end with Yours truly except for MV's which went with a friendlier ending.

Roberta adds: Pepsi or coke and potato chips!?"? My Mama never did this for my class! No wonder the notes were saved!
Catherine replied: I agree, the oddity of serving chips and soda, made this a rare and historical family event.
