Southeast Telephone Company of Wisconsin. Inc. (A Vt BOX 190W - 311 ELIZABETH STREET WATERFORD, WISCONSIN 53185 Phone: (414) 534-5101 FAX (414) 534-5110 January 25, 1996 To My Fellow Board Members; President Melvin J Johnson, retiring; Vice- President Lawrence Wieselman, Secretary Charles Noll, Director Kenneth Hanson, Director Arthur Rummel, and Stockholders of the Southeast Telephone Company of Wisconsin, Inc.; Having had the privilege and honor of serving as Director of the Wind Lake Telephone Company for the year of 1945. I was elected President and Chairman of the Board for the newly organized Southeast Telephone Company in 1946. I feel that my life has taken a hold of me to where I wish to retire at this date, January25, 1996. It has been a wonderful experience to see the growth of the company. The fellowship I have had with the board members in the early days of the company and at the present time. Now we have our Manager Don Hewitt, our Assistant Manager Jim Mitchell, and our Attorney Larry Dalton. I feel it a great honor to be-Chairman of a board such as we have. We have come a long way from the Magneto hand cranked telephone to the modern dial and satelite system of today. New and more modern equipment is coming on the market every day. I trust that the Board will continue to look to the future and be prepared to stay alert to provide our customers and subscribers with the most modern service possible. It has been an honor and privilege to serve the Board, Employees, and Subscribers of Southeast Telephone for the past 50 years. Sincerely, Melvin J Johntson m Now m
