I just found the picture on Minden Memories that was just posted. It is
me and I guess I was about 14. Mr. Grambling must have taken it and the
reason that I was not smiling was because I was wearing braces. I do
not remember the dress or the reason why I had on a wrist coursage or
where this was taken.
The other picture that needs identified is the Civitan picture where my
daddy and Mr. Oliphant are with a group of men and Daddy is sitting down
and has been identified along with Mr. Oliphant. This was a district
Civitan meeting, probably held in Alexandria. La. I went with Daddy to
some of these meetings and Mother and I would go and mess around while
Daddy was in the meetings and then we would have a banquet and dance.
The man in the middle with all the hair is Mr. Gene Swann and could he
dance. I do not remember the other men, but they are not from Minden.
Hope this helps.
