"Nancy Perry Giving Steve Perry a Haircut"

We have absolutely no other info about this newspaper photo, other than that we found it in our files. Nancy Perry, along with her husband Fred, built the Perry Cabin in 1976 when Steve was 22 years old.

"The Embers Song"
by Mrs. Charles H. Kuenzli

© Mrs. Charles H. Kuenzli 1941

This parody was based on a very popular song of the day called The Old Oaken Bucket. The lyrics are from Samuel Woodworth's poem The Old Oaken Bucket, which begins with the line: "How dear to this heart are the scenes of my childhood". See the full poem here. And one version of the song here.

Please note that at this point in the FNCA's history, the Flames were still the young adults in their 20's and, 30's, and the Embers were all the adults older than that, so this song (most likely performed during the then annual Stunt Night) was the older adults singing to the younger adults.

Mrs. Kuenzli was very active at the Assembly, serving as chair of the Women's Auxiliary for many years among other things. Her husband, Charles, became the second FNCA president in 1940.
