Historical commissioner, Beverly Tromley, provided this picture of her grandfather, Ira Fuller.  He drove the bus that took the soldiers from Selfridge to and from Mount Clemens so they could enjoy their free time.

aeDonald McKillop and his sister, Patricia, were just kids posing for a picture.  How many families have a photo similar to this in their family albums? Thanks to historical commissioner, Barbara Urban, this one of her mother and uncle will be preserved for future generations of Harrison Township families.
