Orie and Jan Nelson traveled June 8 to LaCrosse, Wis., to attend the Ranger Rally, a reunion of all classes of Logan High School since 1940. They had an enjoyable time seeing long-time friends, classmates and relatives.
On Sunday they took Orie's Aunt Millie Nelson to brunch and shared several delightful hours reminiscing. En route back to Kansas, they spent two days with friends in Illinois, Curt Bork and Sheryl Falone, and then traveled with them to their new home in Memphis, Mo., where they will relocate soon. Curt is a longtime friend who shares Orie's enthusiasm and hobby of restoring MGs and Jeeps.
On June 14, Orie and Jan Nelson flew to Florida to be with Camille Wayde, Cody and Jennifer. Camille is the daughter of the Nelsons and Cody and Jennifer are their grandchildren.

It was a special week learning of the grandchildren's jobs and activities. They live in Ormond Beach, north of Daytona. They found the weather beautiful and pleasant.
