While going through some old family records tonight I came across my "YOUTH FIREARM SAFETY TRAINING PROGRAM" certificate from the the summer of 1967 or 1968. I don't know, for sure, which summer I received the certificate as there is not a date on the certificate. What I did find on the certificate is the signature of Officer Wozniak who was the instructor of the course. Coincidentally enough, the topic of this gun safety program came up in conversation only a couple of weeks ago when we were together for Thanksgiving. We had forgotten that Officer Wozniak was our instructor...but we certainly remember his daughter Patty whom we were classmates with for the two and one-half years that we lived in Detroit Lakes.

Rest in Peace, Sir. God bless the Wozniak family.
