Cheryl Rothwell dates the above photo to 1930 based on the ages of the people I know in the picture including the late Emagene Veech Green. Also there is a pregnant woman who had the baby in July that makes it likely to be May/June 1930. Cheryl thought it might be a Mt. Pulaski Christian Church event since all the people she recognized were members. Cheryl added, "There are a lot of PeOple who should be there and who aren't if it is a church event." If you can identify any attendees, great. If not, enjoy a memory from days gone by.

God makes mothers out of clouds and angel hair and every- thing nice in the world and one dab of mean. 2. They had to get their start from men's bones. Then they mostly use string, I think.
