This picture isn't in the best shape anymore, but it is a picture of Mrs. Spencer's 3rd grade class for 1956-1957. I am the middle person in the top row (between two boys) and my name was Joyce O'Dell. I remember some of the kids' names but not all of them. I see Carolyn Wills, two to my left facing the picture, Elizabeth MacKenzie (2nd row down, middle on right, Malcolm Vaughn 3rd row down, 3rd from left, Karen Beathe, next one to his right, Spencer MacKenzie, to her right, Beverly Dobson, to his right, Mary Beth Morris to her right by two. I may have these names misspelled. It has been a long time! At any rate, I hope you can use this picture. I have others of Tannery Grade School I'll also send you. Not great, but they are photos.

P.S. Richwood was such a wonderful little town, secluded from so much of the world and problems that arose in other towns. As I grew up, we didn't have to lock our doors and we knew we were safe. I lived on Riverside Drive and Cherry River was only a hop, skip and a jump away. Those were some of the happiest times of my life! My mother and step-dad, Blenda and Clifton McElwain, passed away a little over a year ago, so now I probably won't be returning each year for vacation, but I'll never forget Richwood. It will always be with me in my mind and in my heart.
Have a wonderful day!
