Jan. 1971

A program honoring Mr. and Mrs. Calvin Mills, who have retired as heads of the Clark County Hospital, was held in the Hospital Dining Hall last Saturday evening at 8 o’clock. The packed house of former and present employees and their families were treated to a program announced by Master of Ceremonies, Orville Schuette, as Mr. and Mrs. Mills, "This Is Your Life."

Mrs. Veryl Auberg, Mrs. Grant Anderson, Mrs. Donald Ramberg and Orville Schuette worked together on compiling the script and presenting many people from off stage, which was complete surprise to Mr. and Mrs. Mills. Amongst the mystery guest presented were intimate friends, such as Elmer Shaw, Christie; Jacob Hoesley, Neillsville; Alvin Jacobs, Christie; Supreme Court Justice Bruce Beilfuss, Madison; Henry Rahn, and Mike Krultz, Neillsville; and Myrtle Hales, Manawa. Also introduced were Lorance Schnoor, Elsie Zielanis, Pearl Lokken, Frances Sorenson, Tonk Kolesar, Joe Zielinski and Rueben Hill, all of whom are long time hospital employees. Amongst the other mystery people were Mr. Mill’s brothers, Glenn of Loyal and Lee of Christie.

The script followed the life of the Mills family from their childhood to the present time and presented these guests at the appropriate time.

As memorials, a large portrait picture of the couple and plaque were presented and will be placed in the chapel of the hospital.

Mr. and Mrs. Mills received an autographed table cloth with all the names of the past and present employees along with the script, "This Is Your Life."

Remarks by Mr. and Mrs. Mills and the new superintendent Arlyn Mills followed. A social hour and lunch were then enjoyed by all.
