Irene, far left; Ann (blue top), Jay (white shirt), James (leaning on post), Tim (glasses), Linn (foreground), Janet, Sharon, Tom, Harold.

Irene and Allen with one of two big scrapbooks she rescued from the New Hampton Cultural Center for me. Each one contains hundreds of clippings from World War I, a trove. Thanks to whomever it was who saved all this history over a century ago, and thanks to Irene for giving it to me! Right, James and Tom take a look inside.

Ellen and Ron get ready to take some pictures.
