The Doniphan Area Event Center was not the only community-wide project the Doniphan area saw completed recently.
When athletes, coaches and fans stepped through the gates at the Doniphan-Trumbull Athletic Complex last week, they walked proudly underneath a new Cardinal sign designed, paid for and constructed by a number of area residents.
“I want to say a huge thank you to our moms and dads and businesses for showing their great sprit for D-T schools and our community,” said D-T Superintendent Kirk Russell.
My Funny Valentine: Local couple shares life, laughter for more than 60 years
By Christine Hollister
“That’s why I’ve got to listen to her – because she’s older than me,” laughed Harry Wilson, 81, joking with his wife, Dorothy, 83.
Harry is less than two years younger than Dorothy, his bride of nearly 60 years, but anyone who’s around the rural Trumbull couple for more than a few minutes can see that it’s in their nature to playfully kid each other – they’re quick to share a laugh, a joke or a funny story.
Today marks Harry and Dorothy’s 58th Valentine’s Day together as husband and wife. But if it would have been up to Dorothy’s nursing school housemother, Dorothy and Harry might never have gotten together.
