Aldrich. Grant Johansen, Rex Hafen and Bert Ruesch, who is now serving his tenth year Programs have been varied and appropriate for the times and occasions by honoring anniversaries of important events that have transpired Many families have thrilled us with programs by descendant of early pioneers such as Mortin Rasmussen, Justus Wellington Seely, Jens Jorgensen.
