Day 69- Stories of the Memorial Chapel, Part 2

It’s Wednesday night again that means it’s history night, when we hear stories about our town’s past from the Kane Historic Preservation Society.

If you remember Day 27, Denny Driscoll started telling stories about the Thomas L. Kane Memorial Chapel and we didn’t have enough time to hear everything. So, today he is back for part 2!

 

A few pics:
