Letter #1:
Your letter informing me that I will receive the Community Service award has simply overwhelmed me. It is with deep gratitude that I accept the honor. As your letter indicated, Eva Longoria and I will be present at the Paladium ballroom on May 2, at 8:00 p.m. I will prepare a short biography for you to draw from for your introduction and mail it to you within the week. I would also like to come prepared with handouts encouraging other Melbourne residents to get involved. Again, I am sincerely honored by this recognition and look forward to May 15.

Letter #2:
Mr. Norman Rockwell and I are most honored to have our composition chosen as Best of Festival in Melbourne’s Music Spring festival. We would be delighted to perform a recital at the awards picnic on Saturday at the city park gazebo stage.

Per your request, we have included brief biographical sketches of our lives and our work for the program. Composing has been so rewarding as an end in itself, that we never entertained the possibility of being publicly honored. What a thrill for us!
