Lois Dechand and family would like to thank everyone for making Harry's 80th birthday party last Saturday such a nice event! Many family members and friends gathered at the Hood River Alliance Church to celebrate Harry's special day. It was a great chance to visit, share old stories and enjoy a wonderful meal. Lois is also very appreciative of the moral support she's received from community members. We wish you the best, Lois!
