Here is a chance to pick up a neat little "new-model" Johnson knife and help a great family while you're at it:

Last October, Kay Jensen, a valuable member of our community and our great neighbor during the 1970's, suffered the loss of her left hand in an automobile accident, and on top of that incurred enormous medical expenses.

She and he husband, John have given literally thousands of hours of volunteer service to our city and county. A short list of their contributions include:
Creation and management of a Child Abuse Prevention Team
Angel Tree for needy families at Christmas
Rodeo Coach for Manti High School and Snow College, in Ephraim, Utah
Sanpete Co. Jail Life Skills volunteer
Chief, Manti Volunteer Fire Department
Member of Sanpete County Sheriff's Search and Rescue Team for many, many years
Have hosted 73 foster children in their home

This knife is going to be auctioned off and all money will go toward the Jensen's benefit.
