As previously mentioned I have photo albums from my parents and from my paternal grandparents and I have been scanning some pictures.
These pictures once again focus on my dad and his side of the family. These are interesting on a few levels.
The first is of my grandfather John Pawelski at his mechanic job in the Village of Florida, New York. Not sure who the other two guys are. I believe this old gas station is next to what now is Werners.
The second is of a contraption my grandfather invented. It was a push tractor of some sort and he added a seat and made it into a riding tractor.
The third is the photo the Times Herald-Record used when they did that story I posted yesterday. They must have given him the print afterwards. The date on the back of the photo is March 29th, 1961.
The last two are of my dad in his army days.
As I have mentioned multiple times previously my campaign to raise funds for an editor will be featured in an upcoming episode of the new Crowd Funder Show.
What is the Crowd Funder Show and what does it mean to appear on the show? According to their website:
The Crowd Funder TV Show highlights various ideas that have been selected based on their merit for creativity, social relevance, and commercial viability. Each episode focuses the spotlight on six or seven inspiring projects and personal goals that give the viewing audience insight into the campaign, its principal, and the reason(s) why it should come to fruition. The Crowd Funder TV Show highlights various ideas that have been selected based on their merit for creativity, social relevance, and commercial viability.
What is so neat about their crowd funding method, versus Kickstarter’s, is that it is not “all or nothing.” Further, the rewards are much more exciting. Again, from their website:
Viewers can choose to support the projects they watch by contributing directly to the campaign website or by calling a toll-free number. The Crowd Funder Show rewards contributors with sponsored gift cards for the same amount of money they contribute, up to $100. Supporting people and their projects has never been easier so it’s no wonder you can’t help but feel like you’re a part of something special. The Crowd Funder TV Show is an interesting, inspiring program that highlights human ingenuity and co-operation.
When you go to my page you will see locations once can choose from for the gift card include: Sears, Best Buy, Home Depot and Toys R Us. So, if you plan on doing any shopping at any of these locations anyway you are essentially donating to my cause for free. A total win-win!
Enjoy the photos!
