Amazing how much work went into the sets and costuming. A great number of Hood Riverites of that era were theatrically and musically inclined. No t.v., so these types of production was always great fun entertainment. Somewhat the fore runner of Lions Follies of our time.
Gladys Lee (Reavis) Gilbert was the wife of Franklin Gilbert.
I think Toyvo should read Toivo Annalla. He was known as Tommy Annala.
Edna (Ragsdale) Coulter was naturally the wife of Norvil Coulter who had the Ford dealership.
Forrest Moe was very much into music. An orchardist in the Odell area he also sand with a quartet in that area.
Julia (Angenstein) Coe was the wife of George Parker Coe.
