The Return of the Ring


This is the surprise they promised me at my class reunion. Dagmar is a 90-year-old lady by the way. She is very ill and wanted to see this ring returned to its owner. Her wish has been fulfilled! I, of course, had forgotten that I ever owned a class ring. And, guess what? The ring still fits! lol Here's the story:
Dagmar was walking along 13th Avenue when she noticed a shiny object along the side of the road. She picked it up and discovered that it was a Kelso Senior Class ring. She advertised it in the newspaper as lost, but no one came forward to claim the ring. She even contacted the school to ask for help, but they could not do anything. So the ring sat. She was unwilling to let it go feeling that it belonged to someone who possibly treasured it. Her daughter Patty had worked for the school district for quite a few years in the Transportation Department. In the spring of 2006, she applied for and was awarded the position of Administrative Secretary for the Maintenance Dept. Dagmar would stop in from time to time and got to know Jim Livingston, her daughter's supervisor. In conversation one day, the subject of the ring came up. Jim asked if he could see it. When Dagmar brought it in, he said that he might be able to help find its owner. He did some research, and with the help of his wife, they felt sure that they had identified the owner. And the rest is history as this ring that has been lost for so many years is restored to its owner.
