My children have had the opportunity to come across some amazing adults in their short lifespans. There are definitely too many to name; however, I must acknowledge Mr. Rick Frisk from Central Valley Anglers who not only sponsored my daughter's softball team, but even went a step further, paid for a party, and spoke to the girls as if they were his own daughters.

Thanks, Rick, for being one in a million, to make a difference and give so many girls that extra encouragement.

Also, I would like to publicly thank Mike Bartram, with Changing Faces Theater Company in Lodi, who has, for the past nine years, put on plays out at Jessie's Grove Winery. My children have been involved for three years, and I have never met anyone who runs a classier children's and young adult program in my life. Mike has expected only top-notch work from the actors out there, and it shows.

I was recently out there and was observing Mike. He was interacting with some of the children and I couldn't believe anyone could manage a cast and summer staff of over 100 and still pull off an unbelievable show. Two amazing plays and so classy at that!

Thanks also goes to Jessie's Grove Winery for supporting this wonderful company and allowing them to perform at your establishment.

Thanks, Lodi, for once again letting me get on my "Happy Soap Box" to say some good stuff about some great people! I love to recognize and say thanks when I appreciate someone doing something great for our future! Lodi could use more people like Mike Bartram and Rick Frisk.
