You're talking my corner of God's country!     Valley City! Now, it's not THAT small ... but small enough.   There's a bit of a funnier story here, if I can toot my own horn ... one = of the congregants was heard to ask, "Who's that singing?"   The answer was, "Julia's granddaughter."   "AHA! I knew she wasn't local talent!"   Love that story ...   Mura

I remember visiting it in 1946. No Interstate in THEM days, so you had a good sense of why it had that NAME! Spent many hours there, in the ball park, in the local Sears store, and lots of other places the names of which I cannot remember. From 1961 to 1964 I was pastor at a church 4 = miles west and 16 miles south, in Hastings. Population SIXTY-FOUR! (On such = rare occasions as everybody was in town at the same time.) > > There's a bit of a funnier story here, if I can toot my own horn ... one = of > the congregants was heard to ask, "Who's that singing?" > > The answer was, "Julia's granddaughter." > > "AHA!

Sure, there's a little state college there, but I doubt that it offers a M.Mus.!   Thanks a BUNCH! You DID bring back memories.   Alan
