I have to boost that it was Bert Fenn that invited me and my son to join S & D. Mr. Fenn attended the auction at Cedar Farm my family held after my grandmother's passing. Of course, he purchased anything and everything that was related to steamboats, much to the dismay of family members that had hoped to hang onto some of it. A few years later I ran into Mr. Fenn at a joint meeting of the Harrison County Historical Society and the Tell City or Cannelton Historical Society. Upon being introduced he immediately said, "you need to join the Sons and Daughters of Pioneer Rivermen". He informed me that the annual meeting had just taken place, but that a local chapter - which happened to be the Middle Ohio River chapter was having a meeting in Louisville within the next few weeks. As they say, the rest is history. And, oh boy, has my life been richer for it. THANKS Mr. Fenn!
