We welcomed the Clampers (ECV 7-11) today, with about 80 Clampers visiting the Stirling City Historical Society on a tour of local landmarks. We thoroughly enjoyed their time here, and they were very interested in our local history and all of the exhibits that were put on on display.

They have an annual tour of historical sites, which included Stirling City, the Nimshew Cemetary, and the Inskip Pioneer Cemetary.

There are 63 people in this picture, and another dozen or so that weren't in the picture.
