Solar Lighted Kiwanis Flagpole

Marv Taylor, Chairman of our Kiwanis Flag Pole Committee, and I went out to Ray Bieber's home this afternoon and installed the Solar Light on top of a recently installed Flag Pole. Marv's crew has now installed over 700 flags since the project began back in 2000. Ray and I go back to 1960 when we were both "non-traditional" students at the University of Nebraska taking Chemistry 101.  Ray had been in the Military and I had worked for a few years before starting to take College Courses. Ray and I got together at our house a few times to help each other through that difficult course. We didn't see each other for maybe 30 years when we recognized each other and renewed our friendship. Ray went on to get his Masters Degree at UN-L and a PhD out in Colorado where he taught for a number of years. It was a most enjoyable afternoon visiting with an old friend at his beautiful home in the Garland hills.
