Dear Mrs. Balderson:
The North Carolina Checker Association and the Old Dominion Checker Association would like to officially thank you for the generous gift of the Lester A. Balderson Memorial Checker Library. This gift qualifies as a charitable contribution.
It will be shared between NC and VA checker players, housed in twin glass door cherry bookcases located in North Carolina and Virginia. Buck Smith and JR Smith will be the initial Librarians.
This is a cherished and thoughtful gift for all to enjoy. I will stay in touch and post a picture of the book cases on the web. www.nccheckers.org
We hope to add to and maintain the Lester A. Balderson Memorial Checker Library so that Les lifetime love and dedication to checkers will continue and thereby keeping his name in memory as one of the giants of our great game.
J R Smith
