Former Minnesota governor Al Quie visited our class at Rivendell Sanctuary last Wednesday, September 20. His granddaughter Savannah Quie is one of our students.
Mr. Quie held office from 1979 to 1983, and when Savannah introduced him to the class, she was beaming as she described him as a man of great integrity.
He told us that he bought several copies of Nancy's book Total Truth and gave it to members of his family.
We were also joined in class Thursday and Friday by Katrina and Michelle Brittain, who are respectively the sister and mother of Justin Brittain.
Several of us enjoyed discussion over lunch with Katrina and Mrs. Brittain, and last night they jumped right in to a refreshing time of volleyball in the gym.
Whether from local Minneapolis environs (Al Quie) or flying in from the Southwest (Katrina and Michelle Brittain, New Mexico), Nancy and I think it's terrific that family members of our students take such an interest in their education, which occurs on so many levels, at Rivendell Sanctuary.
