My Grandmas & Me
I came across this picture today on my PC and thought I'd upload it.- The photo is of my grandmothers, Ruth (Haley) LeMaster and Bonnie (Lambertson) Wright, celebrating with me when I obtained my Eagle Scout rank. The photo was taken at the First United Methodist Church in Alexandria, IN. I was a member of Troop 381, and one of the youngest, if not the youngest, Eagle Scouts the troop has ever had.
One of my favorite merit badges, was of course, Genealogy!
I remember interviewing my Grandma Wright for my merit badge - her stories about the Lambertson family are some of the oldest files in my family history.
I also remember a trip we took to Dearborn, MI with both grandmas in the car, and being the oldest grandchild, I was able to hear stories from both of them. Grandma LeMaster would tell about milk routes, and living on the farm, and Grandma Wright would tell stories about World War II.
Just missing them today....
