Bluffton's Goldenaires in 1961

The Goldenaires, a singing group, sang several songs. Members of the group, from left, Fred Amstutz, Jean Triplett, Earl Lehman, Jeanne Szabo, Dean Niswander, Joanne Niswander and Dick Boehr.
This is from a collection of centennial pageant photographs taken by Leland Gerber.
