DAy 56: Dan and Joan

2 Jun

Apple Pie with Cranberries

Today I would like to express my gratitude to Dan and Joan for their many contributions to our youth and to our community.  Dan has been a coach for the Nordic Ski Team at Ashland High School for what seems like forever.  He is energetic, enthusiastic and dedicated.  And the kids on the team love him.  I don’t know how this song came to be associated with the team but I am pretty sure that Dan had something to do with it.  It is called “King of Bongo“. Just try to listen to it and not dance!

Joan is a snow queen in her own right – but she has a stronger connection to alpine skiing for her many years of teaching young skiers at Mt. Ashland. What a graceful woman she is! And in her “real life” she is a gardener extraordinaire! She is the owner of Le Mera Gardens and has supplied many restaurants and flower shops with beautiful blossoms over the years.

Tonight, when I brought Dan and Joan an apple cranberry pie, Joan called me a pie angel for she had dinner guests and had not made dessert. I feel that it was a lucky coincidence that I was able to bring them a sweet treat – for they have been generous in their gifts to our community for such a long time.
