75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - August 10, 1939


75 Years Ago Today 
Eileen's Diary
August 10, 1939


This entry is a post from the diary of my mother, twenty year old Eileen KINNICK SMITH, 75 Years Ago this date. She kept a diary from 1932 as a freshman in high school until she left us, too early, in 1999.


Here is the daily entry for Thursday, August 10:

Another day filled with different activities, for sure.

This is a team from the Smith place, about this time. Likely these are the same ones! 



Families are Forever!  ;-)
