MARY ELLEN BAILEY
Mrs. Bailey has moved into The Arbor and is continuing to give up some of Mary Ellen's stuff.
This week she sent me Mary Ellen's band jacket and scrap book. Hopefully this summer I can
scan the scrapbook and send it to MindenMemories. I will save the band jacket for the Heritage
Room at the new high school. Thought you would be interested in knowing these things are still
being harbored. Claire Turner Fussell (May 26, 2006)
