Dear Editor:

It was with great happiness that we saw the results of work done to erect the new welcome to Wauneta sign. Last summer, our grandson, Clay Christenson, and three of his fellow Boy Scouts from the Kansas City area were in Wauneta along with their parents and both sets of grandparents to set the poles and finish the base for the new sign.

A few of Wauneta’s Cub Scouts were also there to help. Members of the city crew provided valuable help then and again last week with the finishing. We were all grateful for their assistance.

When Clay chose to do this sign as his Eagle Scout project, we were surprised and pleased. This is really a tribute to his late great-grandparents, Homer and Emma Hoff, long time Wauneta residents and to his grandparents, Keith and Kay Hoff Christensen.

Clay’s family continues to spend time in the Wauneta area, enjoying land northeast of town that once belonged to his great-grandparents.

It is my hope that Wauneta will long enjoy this sign of welcome. I continue to be proud to claim Wauneta as my hometown.

Sincerely,

Kay Hoff Christenson

Clay Center, Neb.
