A really interesting surprise arrived via the mail recently to the Gordon Chamber of Commerce.
A letter from a student at Northside Elementary School located in Savannah, Tenn. arrived at the mailbox of the Chamber.
In the envelope was a letter from the student, Hadley Gordon, who stated she sent the correspondence for a class project to learn more about places in the United States that share her name.
She choose Gordon, Neb., for obvious reasons, and put her letter in the mail.
According to her teacher, Mrs. Marsha Rains, the school has been doing the program for many years and it has been met with overwhelming success.
Chamber President Cassie Craven, along with members of the Gordon community, have put together a care package to send back to Miss Gordon to help her learn about the place that many of us call home.
Included in her package is a vintage Gordon Broncs sweatshirt that was donated by Husker Auto Parts’ owner and longtime Gordon resident Casey Walton. Walton also included an original pamphlet from the 1980 Gordon Invitational Boxing Smoker as well.
Tony Meyer, owner of Grocery Mart, included a package of Kool-Aid for Miss Gordon because of the popular brand’s roots which were started in Nebraska.
The Gordon Police Department and Officer Harley Carr have included a patch from a retired uniform from the Gordon Police Department.
The Gordon Volunteer Fire Dept. is sending over a koozie for Miss Gordon to keep all her drinks cold with a Gordon theme.
A copy of this newspaper will also be included and will be sent to Tennessee for Hadley as well.
