TAHS Website Updates for May 2007

Jun 2, 2007

Whew! Another great month! For those of you who are local,
I do hope you were able to attend our annual Memorial Day
Cemetery Walk. I'll be uploading photos to the site soon.
Kudos to Bob Cassens, Joan Johnson, Helen Buckley & Dr.
Sharon Callaghan for their wonderful and entertaining
presentations.

I've spent most of the month uploading military photos. We
have this wonderful scrapbook with hundreds of photos and
mini bios on our local boys. Be sure to check out our
"Military Photo Album."

For direct links to the following updates, please visit our
website and click on "What's New"? section. Then you can
simply click on each entry for a direct link.
Unfortunately, this maiing service for these "newsletters"
does not send in html mode. Keep watching as I continue to
upload those military photos.
