What a wonderful weekend it was to be in Worthington to celebrate with so many family and friends. 1972 was my first KTD and 2022 will go down as one of my best, combining so many great memories over the years.

For some people it’s hard to return home, but that just isn’t the case for me. Sure there are many familiar faces missing from our past, however the Worthington community realizes the importance of this festival of the Sister Cities.

As my Dad would say, “It’s what keeps this city on the map.”

I also was pleased to be able to catch up with my Dad’s bud, Jim Wychor. He wore a huge smile the entire time as did I.

The newly constructed downtown pavilion served as an excellent venue for many to mingle and reminisce. The entertainment provided appeared to please the age spread of those in attendance. And whomever was in charge of the weather, Thank You!


Of course we had to partake in our traditional KTD feast after the parade at the nicely renovated Elks Lodge. With our aging family, the meal was “To Go” this year and we totally enjoyed it at the Ecumen Meadows.

Thank you Cuero, Texas and Worthington, Minnesota for continuing this KTD celebration and I can’t wait for the next one. Go Paycheck!
