Denvy and Gail found
an addition to their family: the students at Jamestwon College. The job
was delightful as Denvy guided student groups through the planning and
execution of their recreational activities. There were dances, concerts,
competitions, and a night club. There were events like Homecoming and
Family Weekend, and special events such as the formal dinner/dance with
a horse drawn carriage.
Truly one major advantage of being in North
Dakota near their roots and family, was the opportunity to spend time
with the family. There was the weekend drive to Ohio to meet the
Saxowski clan which stemmed from a Saxowski who migrated from Germany
and settled in Ohio about a hundred years earlier. No boys survived in
the family and so the name Saxowski or Saxowsky wasn't even present.
was the Thanksgiving dinner in Jamestown which was cancelled because of
wintry weather. There was the trip to southeast South Dakota with Denvy's
mother to tour her grandparents "still standing" original sod
house. There was the trip to South Dakota for a niece's wedding reception.
Becky graduated from high school and moved into an apartment to start
her life as an independent.
