The Fort Dodge Messenger
recently printed a photo
of the construction crew raising the rafters for the shell of Rolfe's new community center building. According to Sue Reigelsberger of the Rolfe Enrichment committee, the framing job began on
December 31. The Messenger also carried a
article about the building project.

We don't usually post health
announcements about Rolfe residents or alumni, nor do we normally post a
request for prayer. However, this is an exception.
Marion Gunderson of Rolfe called today to tell us that Randy Martin had a
heart attack earlier this week. Randy is a 1975 graduate of Rolfe High
School and is our web site administrator. He has invested a lot of himself
in the site on a pro bono basis.
We called Dana, the wife of one of Randy's computer colleagues. She said
that Randy's wife Kim (Zeman, class of 1976) had called and told her about
Randy's heart attack. Dana explained that Randy and Kim were in Rolfe
visiting their families for Christmas. Randy felt ill the day before
Christmas and went to the hospital where he had the heart attack. He then
received medical help at a Fort Dodge hospital. Dana says Kim anticipates
that Randy and their family will be able to return to Colorado within a
Dana also said that Kim asked for prayers for Randy. So whatever your
spiritual leaning in a time such as
this (saying a prayer, stopping for a moment of silence, sending good
energy, writing a card or e-mail note), we ask for your support for
Randy's speedy and full recovery and the well-being of his family. Thanks.
