Laurene Brugger Ferge, Nichols and Lynn Koenigs, Black Creek, were among the guests at the reception “Photography Speaks” Feb. 27, at the Wild Apple Gallery, Menasha.

Laurene and Lynn were delighted to see three images that featured their neighbors from the Nichols area. “Until The Cows Come Home” shows Mabel Marx in her earlier years. Her son David is featured in “Lucky You” and her son Wayne is shown in “Lunch Time.”

Mary Ann Carter took images dating back 50 to 80 years with her current photographs and combined them creating images that are timeless.

Mabel Marx reached 100 years of age Jan. 28, and will be honored at the annual Nichol’s Area Historical Society gathering at Leeman River’s Edge April 17. Among activities there will be a power point presentation showing images of the Nichols area residents from the past.
