Hi! I haven't been on the island since 1959....or was it '58...? My name is Bryan Holbern and I stayed over there with my Aunt Mamie, Uncle Glen, and the rest of the Gibbons Family back then. Sad to say, I haven't been over there since, so discovering this website is a blast from the past! The pic of Firetower Rd. is, for the moment, my new desktop and everybody at work asks where it's at and how to get one. Great site ya'll and love the pix.

Hi Bryan,

I'm wondering if you remember me!! :wave: If you were in school here on the island in '59, then so was I, as a kindergartener. I am Clover Gahn. You may remember my older sister and brothers better. They are Roseann, Chuck and Mike. I barely remember you one time, and you were standing by the old oil stove getting warm. And if my memory serves me correctly, aren't we related somehow? Shrug Mayme Gibbons is my aunt too!

Hi Bryan,

Glad to hear from you. Have wondered where you kids all were.
Don't remember you ages and all the names but remember you and Vern Ray. I'm Roseann and Char and I were in the same grade and I think you were Glenda's age but not sure.

Hope to see you this summer.

talk later,
