The 1968 Tribute to Naismith

 We were so thrilled to have Jim & Beverly Naismith visit us this morning. Jim & Bev travelled all the way here from Texas so we sure appreciate them dropping by. Jim is the grandson of James Naismith and they are huge supporters of our museum. Does anyone notice the striking resemblance between Jim and his grandfather?

We were fortunate enough to have the Naismith’s in for tea and scones yesterday at Tea and Cake!
