[Postmarked April 17, 1967]
Was so glad to hear from you today. I hope Grandma and Grandaddy arrived all right and everything is A-OK!
Today was monthly meeting, they discussed all these unimportant things like the up-keep of the meeting house, and other stuff on that order. (ugh)
This week-end was both the "German social" and the movie "The Loneliness of the Long Distant Runner." The movie was really good – it is about this boy who is sent to a reform school and all the reasons behind it. Friends Service Committee sent it to the school
The German Social was really nice, too. First we had a German cooked meal and then we played all these German games and songs. Everybody went around speaking German – it was quite confusing at least for me! They printed a German paper too. On the first page it is in German and then on the second the same stuff is written in English. You will [find] it included with this letter. Please save it, OK? [And yes, it was saved along with this letter, but is not included in the blog post.]
I'm so glad you all can come for Parents' Day. If it is not to much trouble could you bring a camera? I would appreciate it very much. I don't want to keep it but would like to have some pictures of my friends and other things. See you then.

I do not want to have to open the letter since I would have to break the seal. Please bring up Girl Scout cookies with you. Money arrangements will be made. Is this OK? I sure want to get my money's worth on this since I am paying 10¢ (in postage). [Double the regular postage rate of 5¢, perhaps because of the included newsletter. The Postal Service though interpreted the extra postage as a desire for AIR MAIL service which is stamped on the front of the envelope. Air Mail does not make a lot of sense though from Barnesville to New Vienna, where would the plane fly exactly.]
