Sorry I could not make this. I sent my sister Ruth Alice (Manning) Clark to represent the Manning’s from Maple Ave. Thanks for the photos. Doesn’t look like any of us has aged a bit!
We’ll catch you next time, Bob. In the meantime, send some of your memories to share. Best to you and your family.
Great pictures – great afternoon!! Will work on more stories shortly.
Thanks for making the afternoon great, Peg! Looking forward to your stories.
