A Big Thumbs "Up" To Robert Kott And The Great Job He Did Researching All The Photos In The Book. Thank You For Putting Our Town's History Together In This Book For Future Generations To See And Study. With Out You And The Help Of Bruce Beveridge And Paul W. Rush, Much Of Our History Might Have Been Lost Forever.
