TRUSTEE AND ADVISORY BOARD
Left to right-Kedrlck Newton. Walter Pickering, John Spohr, Trustee,
Frank Clampitt cstandingl.
"Isn't it funny that princes and kings
And clowns that caper in sawdust rings
And common folks like you and me
Are builders for eternity?
And each is given a bag of tools
A shapeless mass and a book of rules
And each will make ere life is flown,
A stumbling block or a stepping stone."
I do not know the author of the above lines, but feel he has expressed
life as it is for each of us. Maybe we will never be a prince or king, but
we will certainly be common folks. Common folks like you and me make
up the majority of the people in the world today.
Each of us is given a bag of tools and a book of rules. It is entirely
up to us to use our tools and rules to the greatest advantage to ourselves,
to our State, and to our Nation. May it never be said that we were a
stumbling block, but always a stepping stone.
May we never lose sight of the fact, that in no other country in the
world have the people the right of freedom and liberty to use their talents,
as in our own free America.
We, in Jackson Township, are proud of our schools, churches, homes,
and community. Together we will always succeed.
As Trustee of your Township, and my Township, I have pledged my-
self to see to it that we continue to be proud of Jackson Township. I hope
to use my bag of tools and book of rules to your greatest advantage.
There is no such thing as a hopeless situation, just the people who
grow hopeless about it.
John E. Spohr
Trustee, Jackson Township
