“Now, That’s a Retirement Gift!”

Continuing the “former Jenison High School students theme,” I recently guided Scott Deemter, (the bearded one), who was a student in my American Literature class, a scant few years ago…. With him was John Meyers, who, with his wife Karen, are dear friends of my wife Judy and me. Scott recently was feted at his retirement party and gifted this RiverQuest Charters fly fishing trip. Scott is a longtime fisherman, and some years ago, he and one of his daughters spent a day in my boat chasing Chinook salmon on the lower Manistee River. So, reunited—this time on the Muskegon River—we were, and it proved a day with numerous steelhead hooked and some landed, two of which Scott and John pose here. All told, it was a great time for all of us and an especially meaningful day for Scott. Congratulations, Scott, and thank you, John, for helping make the day a happy reality and memory for us all!
