Pelican Lake Weaver Family History -Blogging Photojournalism

Reading a lot about the role of social networking, cell phone photos and the new way news is shared in the 21st Century. Since beginning this blog I sense I am part of this and people contact me, when I feature someone here. Recently an entry on Marge Silvis and her life was quoted by her nephew Orville "Joe"Hognander, her nephew in an article for the Minnehaha Acedemy Newsletter. It was the comments about Marge written by Greg Larsen. So here are the Weaver's celebrating Peg's 90th Birthday that was shared with a variety of friends, including Greg Larsen and some of the Foster Family. Left to Right: Jack Weaver, Sue Weaver, Kris Weaver, Nellie Weaver, Nate Weaver, Peg Weaver, Melanie Weaver, Val Weaver, Jim Weaver, Jesse Weaver, Tom Weaver. Nate and Kris took the photo! Such talented folks.

I dedicate this to Gilbert Hovey Grosvenor (October 28, 1875 – February 4, 1966), the father of photojournalism, was the first full-time editor of National Geographic Magazine, serving from 1899 to 1954. I hope to capture that spirit as I write this blog and the Wopida News Blog going forward. Please consider following the blog!
