USCPFA-MN deeply appreciates Bob Schmitt of Laughing Waters Studio for his artistic and technical skill and the donation of his talent and innumerable hours to make this website a reality.  USCPFA-MN also acknowledges the many hours Linda Mealey-Lohmann put into gathering, organizing, and inputing materials for the website and the care that Mary Warpeha put into gathering photos and materials and writing copy for this website.  Without these three, this new website would not have happened.  Finally, USCPFA-MN wishes to thank the members of the Website Development Committee-Mary Warpeha, Linda Mealey-Lohmann, Ted Farmer, Carole Hyder, and Walter Graff, for their many hours of brainstorming and guidance.
