Ancient Alafia Photos

See if you can recognize anyone!

 

The 1998 Alafia was held on property on Jameson Rd. in Hillsborough Co. It was the "Year of the Manatee" and Barb and Lee Huffman were the Booshways.

Ice was delivered by horse drawn wagons.

These guys stole the show when we held court on the porch of the General Store!  From left to right : John (Natty)  Sluski, Max Davis and Jon (the Putz) Houglum. Unfortunately we lost Natty in April of 1998 just a couple of months after this Alafia.

 Now here is a scary picture. Boy have we changed!

Here are some of our Boy Scouts when they were wee Cubs!
