Columbus Troop 115: Gavins Point or Bust

I absolutely y love this picture. I wish I could find someone who could give me more information.

In my opinion, I think these boys are getting ready to go on a camping trip to Gavins Point. When I research Gavin Point, I come up with a couple different locations. I do not know precisely where the Columbus Troop 115 was heading. But I hope they had the time of their lives.

I love the little girl in the picture. I would bet one of the boys is an older brother, but she had to be in the photo. I wonder if she went on the trip too. If a parent was a chaperon, I could easily see the little girl tagging along.

The old truck and camper are perfect for an adventure. If you look closely at the top of the camper, you can see camp cots and chairs. I am guessing, the camper is filled with all types of food and other supplies for the trip.

The two little girls in the background are utterly oblivious to the photo being taken. They seem to be having a deep conversation. When you look closer, I can actually see the one girl leaning toward the other as if to share a secret.

If you know something about this photo, please share with me. I would love to know the story.

Until next time…peace

Remembering 9/11

Do you remember 9/11/01? What were you doing? I was working at a grocery store at the time. One of the customers mentioned the first attack. Then, we heard the news of a second….and the devastating events that continued. I had a small television brought over to the store. All of the employees would take turns going back to the little room to watch the news.

My college class was canceled that night. Our professor emailed us to stay home. Even in rural Michigan, we all felt the attacks that day.

May those who died that fateful day rest in peace.

Until next time…peace
