Hi! I hope you had a good time in Chicago. What did you do there?
We have been working hard at the library lately as Mrs. Adams got some sort of infection in her legs and hasn't been able to work. I think she is to come back today so it should be a little less hectic.
Tell Mom that I have mailed the top back to her. If she wants she can exchange it for a medium sized one.
It is a real nice day here, the sun is shining and the temperature is about 45º. The snow is turning to slush. Last night it rained quite a bit.
Sanford is building a new YMCA. About four years ago they raised $400,000 but they found out that wasn't enough – they put up the walls and the roof and then they ran out of money. So now they need $649,075.28 more. Since we don't know people very well to go and ask them for money we get to help count the money as it comes in. So far they have gotten $44,000.
I have to get ready for work now. Write again soon!
