Bluffton's finest dresses up for party
This was an Alpha Gamma event and "come as you are" was not an option. This group included many of the movers and shakers of that era and left a marvelous and indelible legacy that remains quite evident to this day. Bluffton would not be the same without these folks. It’s October 1950. The party was at the Richland Grange, destroyed in the 1965 tornado.
