A familiar face

Today's schedule had me at Luther Manor nursing home, where I presented my slide show on the life of Red Faber.

For me, the highlight of the appearance was seeing Walter Peterson in the front row. The former University of Dubuque president and civic leader is a Luther Manor resident now, and I do miss seeing him at various community events (including those he organized).

While I'm certain the program was not terribly interesting for most of the residents assembled, the opportunity to renew acquaintances with this treasure of Dubuque made it all worthwhile.
