Tribute deserved

September 23, 2000


To the editor:

Thanks to William Dann, Lawrence now has another wonderful preschool classroom. This newest addition at Woodlawn School was dedicated Thursday to his mother, "Petey" Cerf, known to most people in Lawrence for her determination and generosity.

The article in the Friday Journal World mentioned some of Mrs. Cerf's accomplishments, and touched on Dann's giving nature. However, it was a surprise to me that there were not any photographs of either Mr. Dann or Mrs. Cerf, much less the children who performed at the ceremony. Also, (other than Hank Booth and Margaret Farley) no mention was made of the other Lawrence community leaders who gave tribute to Mrs. Cerf. When you consider all that both Mr. Dann and Mrs. Cerf have given to Lawrence over the years, it only seems right that a picture should have been included with the story, and these other people mentioned.

Thank you Mr. Dann and Mrs. Cerf.

Sharon Wilson,
