Jean, why don't you try calling Janet and Herbie Ketch from Woodland?
They're really active in Woodland's Histroical Society and would know lots
more about this area that I.
Would you and Bill be interested in attending a (some) Midsummer
meetings we will be having this month? We're always open to new people and
new ideas. Even if you only come to the first meeting, tht would be great!
Think about it and let me know!
