Dear Mr. Castellani:
Word has reached me of your outstanding record of community service. I congratulate you on your achievements.
Many of America's most pressing social problems can best be solved through a renewal of the values on which our Nation was founded: duty, acceptance of personal responsibility, commitment, and a respect for every individual that expresses itself in direct or consequential action in behalf of others. Efforts such as yours are evidence that these values remain firmly embedded in the American character. I commend you for making a difference in the life of your community.
Barbara joins me in wishing you every success as you continue to set a fine example for your friends and neighbors. May God bless you.
