Joe Russell gets high praise from friends in Texas

Saturday, December 14, 2002

To the editor:

In response to the article "Cape man recognized for dedication to Boy Scouts": We just read the very fine article on Joe Russell.

We have known Mr. Russell for approximately 45 years and agree with the article. We became friends of Mr. Russell when we were all members of the First Baptist Church and he was our lawyer in 1960. He is one of the most dedicated Christian men you will find anywhere. Our son was always in the Boy Scouts. We know the advantages of the teachings of the Boy Scouts. Our daughter also enjoyed the Girl Scouts for several years.

Thanks, Joe Russell, for a job well-done.
