Holiday Trimmings

On November 29, we had a great day at the Iles House 
decorating for the winter holidays.  

Trimming the porch with greens: Linda Cunningham and Farrell Gay.
Making trim for the House: Dean Clough, Linda Denk, Linda Garvert, 
Betty Ann Poage, Jackie Stites, Elaine Kerhliker and Martha Clough.
Linda Cunningham, Jackie Stites and Linda Garvert 
welcome a special visitor to the House: an oil portrait of Elijah Iles, 
on loan from the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency.  
A close-up of the portrait. 
Thanks to Dave Barrigner locating it in storage and to 
Linda Garvert who pursued the paper work for a loan.
