From the desk of Alison Gibson, Director
Since a flood isn’t eminent we think it safe to show pictures and let us know how lucky we’ve been since 1997. We really like this 1913 postcard for several reasons–The Riviera building looks nice and you can appreciate
the different window trim than today, the house that eventually became Snapper’s looks good, but the water clearly has taken over the first floor, and the wharf boat messes with one’s mind a little bit as it looks like a building across from the Riviera! If you look carefully, you can see a riverboat behind it and at the same height as the street. To the right, you can see the slightly leaning Methodist church steeple and the top of the city hall/school building. Being 1913, this was before the next (1915) school building was built.
We are trying adult craft programs in the afternoon (trying to find that sweet spot of time!) Next is February 7th at 1:00 p.m.–Julie Carpenter will be coaching you in making jars of Lavender Sugar Scrub in the Ripley Library meeting room. It will make the library smell good, and will be good for your skin at home! Call (937-392-4871) or stop in to register.
