Hi - I came across these photos that my sister left me after she passed. They are from her high school days in the forties. Actually this is an article from the Richwood News Leader. I had to fold it for the photos. Thought some of the folks might be interested.
There is a brief description of the people in the photo and their event at the time. The names can be made out pretty well. If they are unclear I can send them to you.
Thank you so much for this wonderful web page. I am able to stay in touch with people that I had lost track of years ago.
Bruce Seabolt (from Southside).
