Winlock News 9.2.15 | Hoffman,

As I get ready to head out for vacation, I thought it would be a good idea to inform you that Kennedi Collins will be able to assist you while I am gone. She can be reached at the phone number listed above for me. She will also be taking care of my precious little dog, Kokomo while I am gone. She will have her hands full, his number one goal in life is to be playful, when she least expects it; I have a feeling he will play hide and go seek with her. She may not find him until I return.

I am really looking forward to vacation and visiting my family in Germany. I can't wait to talk more about my family history and the role each member played during World War II. I just recently discovered that my Grandfather attended a rally in 1922, it was a Hitler rally and he was there to break it up! He came to the United States in 1923 and I can only imagine what it must have felt like to see your country change from so far away. He never got the chance to return to his homeland but I have made it my mission to spend time with the family he so loved. It will also be an opportunity to improve my German!
