Dear Fred,

I wanted to thank you and your colleagues at Vita Needle for your openness and hospitality on our two-day visit to your factory for our story on which aired nationally on "NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw." January second. In preparing our report, I found a genuine spirit of joy among the entire staff with regard to your company's innovative practice of hiring 'experienced' employees - i. e. senior citizens. The entire company proves that 65 is only a number.

It was a pleasure to meet you and your staff.
