A farewell gathering for Julie Bertelsen will be held at 3 p.m. Thursday, July 11, in the athletic offices at Montana State University. The campus community is invited to attend. They can enter through the north entrance of the Brick Breeden Fieldhouse.
The long legacy of the Al and Jan Bertelsen family on campus will end when Julie moves with her mother to San Diego in August. Julie, a Special Olympics athlete and role model for people with Down syndrome, works on the custodial staff for sports facilities. Jan was an X-ray technician at the Student Health Center on campus. The late Al Bertelsen was director of the Strand Union Building for 34 years until he retired in 2008. He died in 2009.
The party is sponsored by Sports Facilities. For more information, contact Sports Facilities at 994-7117.
