Pictured in their Sesquicentennial costumes and beards are the following, front row from left, Marge Smith, LaVerne Hawn, Pat Hayden, Connie Hayden.

Note from Mary Lou: This photo was taken six years before I started work at the Courier-Post. In 1975, when my career began, I worked with Otis, Marge, LaVerne, Paul and Ed. All of these folks are part of the fabric of the Courier-Post's vast history.
