Model of the Old West

       During a talk at the Westside Optimists Club luncheon meeting June 8, area historian Merell Folsom displays a kit he assembled several years ago of an Old West mule train. The retired teacher encased the construction in plastic to protect it during the school presentations that he regularly makes through District 11 Volunteer Services as part of the local Tale Tellers Troupe (“purveyors of imagination and adventure”).
