Throwback Thursday #4

"On January 21, 1966, after shipping 38,000 pounds of stuff in large semis, we packed 21 kids, 3 staff, their luggage, and one dog into a 1956 dilapdated school bus named Matilda trailed by three cars, a truck and two vans and made our way to Anchorage. The kids and staff were all seeing the new facility for the very first time." Dick Gilbert, Executive Director 1965-1974
