Community Chest  11  _ RTP _ 6 Nov 15 _ SFW

Several weeks ago the Pensacola News Journal printed an article by John Appleyard about the Community Chest.  The Community Chest later turned into the United Way.  It was an interesting article by Mr. Appleyard, as they all are.  I ran across these images years ago and set them aside … the only thing that interested me were all of the photos of the local ” movers and shakers “, since my father had taken the photos.  A lot of the names are very familiar to me and a few mean nothing to me, but that really does not mean anything since these images are sixty years old.  I was only two when these were taken.  There are a few images, so I am going to break these up into two posts.  Since I do not know anything much about the images, I am just going to post the images and leave out any comments to the end.  Here we go …

None of the people standing in front of the tally boards are familiar to me … I recognize a lot of the names / faces of the the people on the boards.  I am sure some of you out there will be able to identify these of these people.  I also apologize for not being able to figure out how to put a link to Mr. Appleyard’s article in the Pensacola News Journal.  In fact, I am not sure if I would be allowed to since so many publications do not allow bloggers to link to their sites because of plagiarism laws.  Maybe someone out there will let me know how to link and if I am even allowed to.  Thanks again for looking and feel free to comment.  I will post the other images in a week or so … Frank
