After mass, a short business meeting, and lunch, Geneva gave me a better introduction than I deserved before I started my 35-minute show.
Before and after the show, group members checked out the farm photos we had on display and my books, which we had for sale at a reduced "Event" price.
The photos are farm photos from the early to the middle of the last century which have been submitted by farmers and former farm-kids from throughout the Midwest in response to our request for harvest photos and other farm photos to put in our upcoming books.
Geneva and her husband Everett pose for a picture with me after the show.
I want to thank the Risen Savior Seniors for inviting me to speak, especially Geneva, who arranged the event, and Connie, who helped organize my setup. We also thank all of those people who bought books, shared their stories with me, or had kind words for me after the program. Nancy and I had a fun time and we hope you did too.
