These are photos from Jack Kelly's retirement luncheon.  I had many more posted but, unfortunately, most of the photos were lost in a recent server crash.   If anyone has photos from this event, please send me copies and I'll add them to this page.  The first photo shows the late Bill Kenton talking to Carmine Vignola.
