Lunch with Mr. John Eliason

Today our family had the privilege of sharing lunch with Mr. John Eliason, Waldorf College class of 2009. He was in town to capture wedding images of Samantha Langerud and Steven Boucher.

John, always smiling, brought us up to date on many things in his life, including how much he enjoys his work as a corporate video producer for Fastenal, headquartered in Winona, Minn. For those who may not know, Fastenal operates as an industrial supply network with more than 2,500 locations in the United States and Canada. They also sponsor NASCAR No. 60 Fastenal Ford driver, Carl Edwards.

It was simply super to see how happy John is - staying in touch with his wonderful Camp Wapo, making wedding videos for friends, taking photos of friends and landscapes, living in beautiful Winona, and working at Fastenal. We were glad he wanted to make time to touch base with us.

Thanks, John. We will heed your closing admonition to "stay classy" and trust Waldorf College to - just as you asked - do the same.

Yay!!! It's always great to hear about a Waldorf grad getting a job in their field--especially when it's someone I personally know. Way to go, John!

And I hope you know, Mom (& Dad), that you raised a pretty fantastic son. Well, more than one. It's just that we are especially fond of this one. Thanks for sharing him with us. :-)
