Home Movies and Video

RHS alumni Web site editor, Helen Gunderson, created a video in 2008 when her father, Deane Gunderson (RHS 1935) celebrated his 90th birthday. He died on July 1, 2010, and it seems fitting to post that video for others to enjoy. Helen's vision was that the clips would not focus Deane specifically but show him in the context of his farm, family, friends, and the Rolfe community and allow others a view not only of Deane but perhaps of themselves.
