This page will have pictures from the era...


This photo was from 1967, my Mom saved it. The Missourian did not run many pictures in those days, so this is pretty rare. This to give you an idea of what we can do to share pictures on these pages. Click on the picture to see a larger picture of the same photo.

Got any pictures or 8mm film to share with the whole group? I know there is some out there! If you have pictures or 8mm film remember it is not doing nay good sitting in your closet! Call or email me and I can help you find good people to do this for you. I can then edit your DVD to take out what you don't want others to see. If you can convert 8mm film to DVD I can edit your DVD convert so all of us can see this on the web.

None of us are getting any younger you know!

Ah yes, this is the view we all saw many, many times ...home.
