On Sunday, Dr. Eplee walked all of Elwood, Ks and listened to voters concerns about school funding and budget worries confronting the state. On Tuesday 7/12, he finished the walking/listening tour of the Eastern half of Doniphan County. He met with Jim Needham, Robin Johnson, and John Smith and was very appreciative of their help in deploying Kansans for Eplee yard signs. Assistance from supporters like this is invaluable.
Dr. Eplee also walked throughout the all the businesses of Wathena. He met with Tony Libel at Farmers’ State Bank, who had a couple of grandkids delivered by Dr. Eplee, visited Simpson’s Hardware, and stopped by the offices of The Doniphan Chief. He also spoke with Roberta Caples of The Flower Peddler, whose children he delivered, and stopped by the Dairy Barn on the Highway, which is now managed by Todd and Suzan Hailey. Before leaving Wathena, he dropped a few yard signs off to Dr. Feuerbacher, who has been very supportive.
On the way home, Dr. Eplee stopped off in Troy at the clinic he founded over 30 years ago. He had lunch with the fantastic Troy staff and finally got a pic with Charlotte Thomas, one of the original employees who started over 30 years ago, and Diane Holzhey, a long time nurse at the clinic.
