Apple Shots #16: Appleton Photos, 2009-2010
Welcome to Appleton! Here are some new Fox Valley photos from 2009-2010. For photos from other realms, check out Friends and Strangers I, Friends and Strangers II, and More Photos of Friends. Mamy more scenes are available via my photo portal.
Veterans marching in the Appleton 2009 Flag Day Parade remind us that there are still fellow veterans who are not accounted for, some of whom may be in captivity even to this day, or may have recently died in captivity. It's a story demanding full disclosure, public attention, and international pressure, not a blind eye in the name of pleasant relationships, and not deliberate obstruction for those seeking the facts.

A scene from the Appleton Farmers Market, August 9, 2009. Best farmers market in the world, IMHO. Outside of China and Korea, anyway.

Hawk flying over the Fox Valley, Dec. 2009.
Once a Masonic temple, then the Outagamie Historical Museum, this building is now known as the History Museum at the Castle. It's a beautiful landmark on College Avenue made from the durable dolomitic limestone taken from the High Cliff quarry, I think.
The new Richard and Margot Warch Center at Lawrence University, a student center with one of the best cafeterias in the country on the ground floor. It offers beautiful views of the Fox River. Richard Warch was the President of Lawrence University when I came to Appleton in 1987.
Lawrence Chapel on the Lawrence University campus along College Avenue, a scene for numerous cultural events in the Fox Valley and one of the crown jewels of Appleton.
