A deep dive into our archives III

Just so you know, we are still on the job of discovering and preserving local history during this COVID-19 epidemic. Our board members are each working remotely from our respective homes on exciting projects that will help bring more of the extensive holdings we have collected over fifty years to light. More details will be forthcoming in later posts.

Speaking of fifty years, we missed out on celebrating our birthday party last June!

On June 4th, 1970, 54 persons attended the first meeting of the Historical Society of Riverton held at the Porch Club.

We hope to celebrate with you when the coast is clear.

With so many folks leading reclusive lives during this crisis, a nostalgia for the experiences of our younger years has perhaps prompted a flurry of comments and feedback to many former posts. Thank you for your continuing interest and support.

Unlike the last set of unidentified Riverton School photos, the donors of these photos kindly supplied the year taken and some had the names of people in the photos on the back.

Let us know if you see someone you know.

If, during your own seclusion, you find something that can add to our collection, please contact us.  Stay safe, kids. -JMc, Editor
