from our Society’s reporter- Jim Barnabas. Jim writes reports on all of our meetings. Sometimes-for instance when they marginally exceed 250 words, the maximum allowed by the editor- they fail to appear in the LB Parish News. So here are 3 that were too long.

I have been given a couple of really excellent framed aerial photos of Long Bennington and I hope that eventually they will be hung in the Village Hall where everyone can see and enjoy them.
