From the Archives



The scanning process has been slow, but all of a sudden I find a little more time on my hands this week. Not sure why that is? Any how I thought these would be fun to see. If someone happens to have Aunt Maureens wedding announcement please go ahead and post it..

How about the American Legion?

OK, so upon reading all three Lauren asked what is the "M" for in Aunt Kathleen's name and I did not know. I don't think its Marie like she suggested thats not to Irish. Is it Mary after grandmas sister? Also how about the write up on the dresses of the bride and bridesmaids... I think Uncle Bill had a buddy in the newsroom.

Joyce is the keeper of dates and facts (while her mind is still sharp) I am a part keeper of the archive but anyone with a scanner and a pic older than a few years can contribute at anytime...

It is fun..I will add more soon.
