South Dakota Gift Exchange
Picture and letter
Note to Suzanne Millay: Our group was very excited with the beautiful carvings that Kentucky did. Patty received the Santa moon, Mike got Santa's hat hanging up until next year, Frank got the star with cross, and Hisako the Snowman. Other members wanted to know if the exchange would happen in 2015. I said we would just have to wait and see what the New Year brings. I was so thrilled to have met you and your group. I think all carvers must be just a special bunch of folks. Thank you for getting this exchange going and passing the information to the other carvers. Thanks again for letting us get to know some fantastic folks in Kentucky. Merry Christmas from the Haycamp Carvers to the River Valley Carvers. Patty Kaul

Nice Job!

Cliff was looking mighty handsome in his
"dress blues" tonite.

The Kroger store in Independence KY Krogers wants to make Cliff Reeder their focal point for a Military bulletin board inside their store.
