SEPTEMBER 18 - AL BARTH CLASSIFICATION TALK
Guest: Dave Fraher (Powell)
Members We Missed: Andrews, Blair, Crockett, Dennis, Laux, Mann, Murphy, Whitney
Al Barth gave a classification talk "rerun" for the benefit of newer members. In discussing his roots, he mentioned his eligibility to join the Sons of the American Revolution, tracing from ancestors on his mother' side -- and his mother's unsuccessful efforts to get him to join. He joked that he actually had dual eligibility because an ancestor his father's side also fought in the revolution --- but on the opposing side as a Hessian. Al was a science teacher at Gould Academy for 28 years, retiring in 1988. Later, he worked for a time in Stephens Memorial Hospital's Development Office. His extensive public service activities included four terms in the state legislature, as well as many years as Selectman in Bethel, and member of the SAD 44 school board.
Thank you Walter ~
