Friends For Quite A While


Great friends, great fun, great times.....

We have even forgotten where we met... probably the Elks. We have fun together no matter what we do! Herb and Irene share the desire for adventures and they are staples in our little group of friends. They are all over our website so try a search but below are a few snapshots we have collected.
