This program will be prepared by BG Enterprises, a well-respected company that has been servicing many schools in Polk County and the Missouri Synod School District for over 30 years.  This company will solicit advertisements from our local community to help cover the printing costs.

If you are involved in a business that would enjoy high advertisement visibility among families with school age children, please let me know, so that I can give your name to Diane Grathwohl, BG Enterprises, our ad representative.  You may also reach her directly at 386-405-1849 or

We do not want to overlook anyone who is interested in being represented in these programs, but ad space is limited, so please contact me soon.   You may use the tear sheet on this letter to indicate your interest.  If you have any questions, please feel free to call or e-mail me.  Thank you for your continued support of St. Paul Lutheran School.

Thank you,

Brandy Freidank,
