Ms. Helen Reeves Goodman of New York City, Niece of Ruth Scott attended with her daughter Galen Bacon and her husband Ian and children Sarah Jane and Jonathan from Cleveland, Ohio. Even though the day began with a thunderstorm and shower, it ended with sunshine over the potluck lunch.
The afternoon was filled with a hayride for the young, a brisk walk through the woods for the athletic, and down home music provided by Laura Robinson, Margaret Foote and her friend Jack for those who just wanted to relax and visit. It was a wonderful day for everyone.
