Video Introduction

We recently found a 30 year old slide show tape commissioned by the Friends of the Old Yellow Meeting House sometime around 1979. While the translation to digital form is not perfect, we are glad to be able to share this with you after all this time. While some of the slides had faded with time and the audio track still has the 'beeps' to tell you to advance the projector, this presentation shows where the Friends started from and gives an idea of what we have accomplished. Many of the tasks described here have been completed and we hope to post pictures of the completed work soon.
