Our '73er: Paula Ammons and Her Pictures!

  Photo of me at Quilt Retreat in Rushville, NY by the frozen 
Canandaigua Lake last March - it snowed unexpectedly!!!

My quilt blocks - "Bali Sea Star" (not completed)

My first snowshoe experience - love it!

As a tea lover, I attended a May tea luncheon gathering at 
Melinda (Chapel) Padden '74 at her gazebo.
   Other 74ers - Hazel (Jones) Rinas, Arlene (Marsh) Kuschmider,
Brenda Sue (Underwood) Pickering and  '71er Kathleen (Russell) Setzer were there.

Paula, thank you for sharing your pictures!
