June 30th 2012- 60 years
After getting married they moved to Washington for 18 months and then they came back and built the basement of the house they currently live in. Back then you could build just a basement and put tar paper on the top of it and finish the rest later. So they saved up and eventually built up the house with a kit from a company. Grandpa and his buddies built it. They even nailed together the wood floors by hand. Crazy!
So here are a few pics from the gathering.
This is a Blue Jay my Grandfather made 10-20 years ago handing it down to his greatgrandson.
