I have been working on research and found some information.  This was added to the scrapbook because it would be a reason grandma and grandpa moved into Grandpa Schyler Overmyer's house.

LAKE BRUCE GARAGE [Bruce Lake Station]


LAKE BRUCE GARAGE WAS ROBBED THURSDAY NIGHT

The Lake Bruce garage, located at Bruce Lake Station and owned by Lloyd Overmyer,

was entered sometime Thursday night and $13 in money removed from the money box, which was

in a drawer in a book case in the office of the garage.

Entrance was gained by the robbers using a skeleton key. Sheriff Carr, who was called to

invesigate the robbery, believes, as does Mr. Overmyer, that the job was committed by some one

familiar with the garage.

New scrapbook

I am busy working on my next scrapbook.  This book will be of my dad growing up.  I have journaling that he told me about each picture of him.  I am also learning how to use the program Adobe Photoshop Elements 4.  I hope this will help my create great digital pictures and pages.  This program will also help my with my next book.  That book will be a cookbook with journaling and pictures by my relatives and their recipes.  I have many scrapbook ideas to work on, but first I must get all of my room ready to do this.  So I am presently finishing my room for easy access to all my supplies.  Hopefully, I will have new pages posted soon.
