Palmyra Highlights

From July 11 through July 14 Don and Virginia and eight of their children and their families enjoyed a great reunion in the Palmyra, New York, area. The only thing that could have made it better would have been for all 12 living children and their families to be present and for the Saturday pageant not to have been terminated early due to rain and lightning. The following are selected photos of the reunion's activities:
