Notice the attire of the parents in attendance?  Hats for the mothers, and suits for the fathers.

Vera Gerke, our leader for the entire ten years, from Brownies through Senior Scouts.   I know, it's hard to keep your eyes off the classic '57 chevy in the background isn't it?  Would the two-toned car next to it be a '56 Ford perhaps?
