Someone, not sure who, but someone has created several nice photo albums of some old programs.  Over the next couple weeks, I’ll scan them in and post them out here.  The first installment in the “Wayback Machine” is when we fixed up the Apage Center in 2002.

Pictured are Steve Betka, Tony Nardozzi, John Cassidy, Jr., Lester Ottenwalder, Mike Tremblay, John Whittaker and Jim Smiszek.
