We thank Joline Erben and Elizabeth Blacksmith for getting us the identifications and for letting us know that the photo was taken at a journalism class boat cruise at Lake McQueeney.

We found a photo of a 1964 Canyon High School group that needs some names attached.
(AA-97-065) is a group of young ladies and that one smiling young man in the center. We would like some help in identifying these young people and to see for what occasion the group is gathered.
The second picture for which we are asking help this week is two young “Eagles” in 1979. They seem to be proud of all those badges they are wearing, and they should be.
We would now like to name these gentlemen. If you can help us put the names on (AA-97-066), give us a call.
We have just received a wide range of German dresses in our gift shop. Dorothy Schneider, our wonderful seamstress, has been working her fingers to the bone getting ready-for the Wurstfest season.
We now have dressing in a wide range of sizes and colors.
We also have mother-daughter dresses available. Can’t you imagine how adorable it would be to do the chicken dance with your daughter in matching dresses? Hurry — these are limited!
