Menard is rich with history and great folks. It is wonderful to have these great photos and I wanted to share. I have posted an album on my Facebook page at the link http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1800153522768.2097182.1207701200&type=1, you might also enjoy.
Below are some unidentified photos out of Don Wilkinson’s collection, and he has been kind to share.
If you know anyone, please let me know.
