This collage is dedicated to you and only you. It will be a visual celebration of your life. As busy adults we tend to forget about our own interests. This project forces you to think about yourself. This will encourage you to reflect on your past, present, and even your future. It will be an interesting study of who you are. You can visualize how you have evolved from a child to an adult. Have fun with this. It's about reflection and creativity.

60th Anniversary of Doris Day Filming | Saturday, June 30th at 2:00 p.m.
On June 30, 2018, Tyler City Station rail historian Robert Joseph Belletzkie will give a narrated video presentation with period newspaper articles, contemporary photographs and historical documents to commemorate the filming of It Happened to Jane. On this day exactly 60 years ago the Milldale railroad station became a movie set hosting Doris Day, Jack Lemmon, an aging steam locomotive, and a Hollywood film crew in the tale of a Maine lobster woman battling big railroad tycoon Ernie Kovacs; Ms. Day is the only surviving cast member, going strong at age 96 today. After the talk, all are invited to take the short drive for a brief tour of the 1892 depot which has been restored by the town as museum.
