James Doherty turns 88!

Jim Doherty will turn 88 on May 3, 2000.  Jim's featured here in an oh-so-Irish hat his granddaughter Rita picked out for him.  Jim's home on Rose Lake in Rileyville is the beloved site of the annual Doherty family reunion.  Best Wishes Jim!


Steve Jacobi, Rileyville's local fiddler, has a CD out!  Many of you know Steve from the barn dances at the Doherty reunion.  Steve's band is called Fiddlin' Around and their music CD At Home With Friends is just great.
