|Set 7) 1962-07:
Summer program at Voluntown
I wasn't going to scan my only five snapshots from the NECNVA summer program, but at least these are better than nothing.
Beverly Sterner and Bill Henry.
Main farmhouse at Voluntown.
Ex-chicken-coop at Voluntown. I did a lot of typing here (e.g., thank you letters for Chicago-Washington Peace March hosts; NECNVA minutes), as wasps zoomed in and out.
Charles Jackson (?), Dennis Weeks (in truck), Henry Wershaw (?).
Same truck at Voluntown, but I can't ID anyone here from behind.
