Mayor Craig asked Red if he had anything he wanted to say Red stated, "I'll tell you all that stuff that you got written down there I couldn't have done it without the help of my friends, my Elks Lodge members, a couple of coaches here that always were on my side, my family, people from the city of Portage. Just let's put it like this. If I didn't have an army behind me I wouldn't be standing here tonight. And again I just want to thank you guys very much and that lady right there she missed missed a lot of meals a lot of nights when we were someplace else playing ball or at an Elks meeting or something so she should probably get in on that too but I thank you very much again".
