Letter: Thanks for the memories

To the Editor:

For 12 years, I have been blessed to represent The Salvation Army in Crystal Lake through its after-school and summer activity programs known as The SAL and Summer SAL. Our modestly-sized gym and game room was home to sports, games and arts and crafts for junior high- and early high school-aged patrons – mostly boys – every day.

A recently discontinued “word of mouth resource,” The SAL was open to all without fee. My personal and heartfelt thank you to everyone who helped make so improbable a ride so joyful for so long a time.

Ralph Gebert, “G”

Crystal Lake
