Photos from Eileen's Photo Scrapbook:
Sent these photos to Erna Lund; she added (Feb 2005 letters) names and comments (see below photo):
Eileen is in front, of course, and Edith Lund right over her shoulder. [I knew these!]
Erna said this relative to the guys:
"And the fellows were just guys we met over there. They had a boat and took us for rides! Not a fancy cabin, but fun!"
Erna's comment on Spring Lake:
"This is at "Spring Lake" near Jefferson. There were little cabins to rent - and a nice dance hall there we enjoyed - No air conditioning but they could open up some places on the sides for air." ..."I don't think there's even a lake there anymore." [True; it is on Natural Resources map, but not open to public any more, it seems]
Erna also added, generally:
"One summer a bunch of us girls rented a cabin for a few days - Had to be there on dance nite! They had good music - Big orchestras!"
