Return to 1940s

The thing Mom remembers most about her scout camp days at Swauger's Dam was that the boy scout camp was directly ab0ve it.  (The boys are pictured in the background of her teenage picture).  I brought her back to the park (now New Germany) where we enjoyed a picnic and more memories.  2016

The 8 inch page I made for Mom (she can handle the smaller album).  I created the 12 inch page first, then sized and printed the pictures 2/3rd the size of the larger ones.  I kept the journaling the same size font so that it was readable.

(This is the page I made in 2010 with the original photo)

The best thing about girl scout camp was that the boy scout camp was just above. The picture of Mom was taken by a boy whose oxford shoe showed in the foreground. She remembers pitching their tents and digging their own latrines. Mom was 16 here and is pictured with her best friends Billie Jane Barncord and Emily Kirkwood. 1941
