We, the members of the fourth-grade class at Lodi Seventh-day Adventist Elementary School, wish to share our appreciation for Dr. Alan Nakanishi.

Last Sunday, Dr. Nakanishi participated with us in our school's 54th annual Pet and Hobby Fair's parade of floats on Central Avenue.

Each class assignment was to create a float from a different country. Our class chose the United States.

We entitled our float "The Fourth Grade and Famous Americans" and built a 16-foot-long American flag in class.

Of course, we needed a truly famous American to ride with us. We immediately thought of Dr. Nakanishi. He is not only on the Lodi City Council and running for state Senate, but has been for many years a supporter of our school.

We appreciate Dr. Nakanishi taking time from his busy schedule to spend the morning on our float and at our school's fair. We thank him for being part of our school and being the kind of American we can look up to.

Dorothy Phelps and the fourth-grade class, Lodi Seventh-day Adventist Elementary School
