Default Final Chapter (for now) in IDLEWILD/AVALON History

Yesterday morning a mailing tube arrived from Annie Blum in St. Louis with the results of her search in St. Louis for details of the boat's AVALON days there. Included were a wonderful newspaper photo of the steamer landed at the St. Louis levee and one of her taken from a bridge in Kansas City during her 1958 excursions up the Missouri. Accompanying those photos were scores of newspaper and WJ clippings about the boat. The final slides for the September program will now be photographed, and coordinated with the audio sound track that Jonathan put together for me when he was home last week. Getting this all gathered and assembled really brings home the fact that this project was a community effort from all my good friends in the river and steamboat family. A long and appreciative whistle salute to you all for your tremendous help and support in telling the story of the oldest operating sternwheel excursion steamboat in America!
