Dunton Youth Wins Tripby Sue Dunton (Ulster, PA)
|My son, Joshua Dunton (age 14), won a trip to meet Michael
Jordan. The contest was sponsored by Ray-O-Vac Renewal Batteries. What he had to do to
enter was write in 40 words or less what he thinks should be the next Ray-O-Vac Renewal
Battery commercial featuring Michael Jordan.
He entered last spring, we found out he was a grand prize winner in the fall, and in February of this year, he and I took our all expense paid trip to Chicago to meet Michael Jordan. We had lunch at Michael's restaurant, met Mike at the United
|Center, had a few photos taken, got a few autographs, then
watched the Bulls beat the Pistons 99-90. It was quite an exciting trip!
Josh has been a big fan of the Bulls for years. He especially likes Michael Jordan, not just for his athletic ability, but also because off the court he is a very nice person. I like the fact that he's a very positive, moral, and family oriented type of person, and a good role model for kids.
If they actually use Josh's idea for a commercial, we'll let you know.

|Spring is here. Not just on the calendar. The plumbs, pears, and cherries are in bloom. The hay is starting to really grow, and the chickens are laying again.
|All of the animals seem happier, too. Not just us
humans. After a wet, cold, and dark winter, the season of rebirth and renewal is
Happy Easter from the farm.
