Spencer.Larry, a former resident of Waynedale, came across this photo while going through some old albums. It was taken at a picnic at the John Clausen cottage on Lake Wawasee around 1947-49. Bill Wetzel was the choir director and sometimes the organist at the Waynedale United Methodist Church for a number of years. Alma Brydon was the regular organist, but Bill gave concerts on the vintage Allen organ when it was new. Donna McCague directed the children's choir for a year or so when it was first started in 1947 or 48.
