To the editor:
A big thank you to all the former Dodger wrestlers, their families and special guests who attended the second Dodger Wrestling Reunion at the Lions Den in Fort Dodge. The event was a huge success as athletes representing six decades shared their memories with teammates and wrestlers of other eras. The food was excellent and the atmosphere relaxed and informal. There was much fun and laughter as folks shared the microphone, viewed championship trophies and written memorabilia of past years. Special recognition was paid to Walt LaFollette, a former North Junior High teacher and coach, who positively influenced the lives of many of those present. The next Dodger Wrestling Reunion is scheduled for the second weekend in July 2017.
