Thank Yous

A thank you forwarded by Alice Martin from Nancy Chapin whose husband Chick Chapin was honored at the CLD awards banquet, and in the November Reader, for the 10 year anniversary of his sixth Century ride.

Thank you for all you did to create a special celebration for Chick - and for me. Chick wasn't able to hear much, but I think he has carefully reread the citation in the shadow box at least 3 times. He was very touched by the citation and the pictures cycling at dinner. I think Martin's brilliant decision to use the 'handkerchief' picture was marvelous as it was about the only picture that would have alerted the general audience that he wasn't just another rider with a picture.

I thank you and CenterLine, too, for our meals. The country club did a great job for a crowd. I was impressed, and grateful (a little embarrassed) for your generosity.

Thanks again. Many memories were invoked last night - from the beginnings of Pony Club to the many collaborations you and the Chapins have had. It's been a lot of years!!

Thanks again, Nancy
