I received this e-mail this morning from Denise, Dean's daughter-in-law:
Dean Hansen has had a polka band in the Omaha area for over 40 years. He is 87 and now in the Ashland nursing home with a broken arm. He is a social guy, so the quarantine with the "no visitors" policy has left him quite lonely.
Kevin Koopman, band director at Goodrich Middle School, and Jake Vyhlidal, went to the Ashland nursing home last weekend and sat in the courtyard outside Dean's window and played his favorite polkas.
