Joan of Arc Chapel at Marquette University

This chapel was brought from France by a rich woman, who reconstructed it on her land in New York.  Marquette University, a Catholic college a few blocks down from the Brumder, inherited this chapel.  They added the seating area so it could be used as a chapel for their students. Inside, one sees various artifacts and the stone upon which Joan of Arc prayed.

Flower gardens and a fountain found in the courtyard in front of the chapel.


Dixieland band that rules!!!

The Actual Air Show

War plane that can turn into a helecopter.

 The highlight of the show for us all was the Raptor, going through its paces.  Tom will give me his pictures and I'll add them.  My mouth was open in amazement and awe, but Tom got the great pics!!

I haven't seen an air show since we lived in Atwater, near Castle AFB, and the one we saw from the deck of the Coral Sea
Aircraft carrier around 1980! I like the B-17!
