Expressing appreciation for Jeanne Leland

To the Editor:

I would like to take a moment to send a note of appreciation for the wonderful support and encouragement we of the North Branch Area Community theatre received when we began our endeavor in the late 1980s until our last production in 2004.

Looking back, it is sometimes easier to get a full picture.

Jeanne (Leland) and staff made everything better for us. It was all new for us and there were absolutely no territorial type distinctions given to us.

We had full, and  might I add, loving support, which we needed to be a success.

But then that is what we came to expect from Jeanne. How does she keep smiling?

I am sorry to hear she is retiring. Whenever you see her around town, she is friendly and gracious. We have been blessed in North Branch.

Jeanne, you will be missed. I wanted you to know how much we benefitted from your heart and those heart gifts.

The North Branch Area Community Theatre developed over time. Any success we achieved was because of all its participants giving and giving and because we were sheltered by Jeanne and the wonderful Community Education of North Branch.

If we have not thanked you enough, we take this time to thank you now.

Jeanne, you will be missed.
