Mayer couple chalks up milestones

This subject has been on my mind since last Christmas. It is about two of the best people and citizens of Carver County, Mr. and Mrs. Milfred Dalchow of Mayer.
How many times when any of us go to social events, fundraisers, weddings and funerals, do we see the Dalchows paying their respects to people who have friended them or patronized their business over the years?
Last Christmas (2012), I happened to sit next to Gwen Dalchow at my grandchildren’s Christmas program. While conversing, she proceeded to tell me Milfred’s goal would be Christmas 2013, this year. It would be their 70th annual Christmas of selling trees. Wow!
There will have been two milestones reached this year. In April, Milfred reached his 90th birthday, and now their 70th year of selling Christmas trees. My father and mother always went to them for our tree. That is how I met them and for how long I’ve known them.
In the world we live in today, the word artificial has become commonplace. It is my suggestion that as many of us that can should put the word artificial aside for one Christmas this year and buy a real tree, no matter what size, to show appreciation to two of the best people and their families that Carver County will ever know.
We wish you a happy birthday, a happy 70th anniversary, and the happiest, most prosperous holiday season ever. I hope you all keep this in your memory bank.
