Sixty-nine years ago, we moved to Baraboo after graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Dick began his teaching career at the high school. During those 69 years we, Joyce mainly, raised six children and became active members of the community.

Our children graduated from Baraboo High School, went on to college, and have careers of their own. We loved our time in Baraboo, but it is time to move on. This summer we will move to assisted living in another city.

We will take fond memories of Baraboo, its people, and the teachers who made Baraboo High School a center of leaning, from which our graduates can gain admittance to the top colleges in our country.

Joyce and Dick Bates, Baraboo
