Summer Happenings

Neaveill Retires!

It was a wonderful 44 years in the business. Jim did a first-class, old fashioned "slide show" of his history with Greg — dating back to the darkroom days in Jim and Donna's laundryroom in their apartment on Lake Arlan back in 1971. Outstanding job. No one does it better than Jim! The highlight of the evening came with a letter from Jim's brother Jer, who opened up his condo in Santa Fe, NM, to Greg and Becky for a week's stay. Jim and Donna threw in $300 spending money and then Jer came with another surprise — an Auction Pledge in Greg's name for Auction 2016 of $1,000. Wow! What a way to retire! Thanks goes out to all from Greg!
