Exerpts that can't be missed!

The drought of 1957

May , 1958

Dear Fellow Member:
We have been fortunate for our May meeting to have found a
person who has a "reflectoscope" which permits photographs and other
memorabilia to be enlarged on a screen.

We are further fortunate that the owner, Miss Naud Van Arsdale (she Will be with us) is an old time
resident of our area who can tell and show what things were like when city folk esteemed it a great privilege to spend a vacation or a season on or near the "basking'" ridge. Some of our members, too, who have spent a vacation or a season on or near the "basking" ridge.
