Classy cars for classy folks

Residents from the Ecumen senior living community in North Branch sported fun T-shirts while taking in a classic car show on May 14 as part of National Nursing Home Week.

Resident Elmer Karas said the cars reminded him of the 1928 Buick and Model T’s from 1918 and 1926 that his father once drove and sometimes had to crank to get started. Pictured, Elmer (right)  talks with car enthusiast Carl Morse in front of a blue 1940 Ford pickup. (Photo by Jon Tatting)
