Letter from Dan Nuckols

Dear Jamie Evans,

What a joy it was to talk with you this morning. I can’t tell you how much it means to me to remain a part of Arbon Valley and have “The Nuckols” place still in conversation. I do so love that valley and the time I spent going to school there 6th – 8th grade…. seems like only yesterday.  Jerre was the first one to ever lay a punch on my jaw…. I can’t remember why, but he jumped in the air and connected a good one.  Some things a fella just never forgets.

Please add me and my wife, Karen, into the “walk” status of the fun run as spiritual apparitions. We will be there as such.  Best of luck to all in acquiring new payground equipment.

Please give my love to the valley,

Dan Nuckols
