Could everyone write one simple essay about something that once happened in Saltaire…that they saw or were a part of…and put it on one big website? Somebody should collect a lot of stories before we all forget. Otherwise it is like a line in “On The Beach” : The history of the war that now would never be written.” -(JO'H)

Note: Helen Weinlandt passed away on March 20, 2014.  She lived 103 years.

The only way to do it: with friends and good cheer.

Who can see a relative here?

Ans: they waited out a hurricane together in 1957. (Or was it only yesterday?)
The only thing Jeff W. never told me: Where the hell were the kids during this horrible hurricane?
Who's who:
Five seated in front from left: Oliver Hull; Georgiana Hull; Bill Weinlandt; Helen Weinlandt; Rita Connelly.
Three in rear: Paul Connelly (II?) Mr.Aherne and Mrs. Aherne.

Hope FI folk came through the storm all right! The original predictions had me worried about how the island would fare. Even in its lessened form, Irene still packed a lot of power. Take care, all!
