There is nothing like a Leon Hill pig roast as these photos from 1999 to 2004 will attest. —Steve—

In the winter of 1998 through Spring 1999 a group of women from the community worked for many days and hours to create the quilts that adorn the Town Hall. The quilts represent a work of love and friendship by an enduring community that cares about the arts and creativity as much as it does about each other. –Steve–
No tradition may be more “Jamestown” than an Anvil Shoot on the 4th of July. I took this series of photos on July 4, 2001, showing the making of an Anvil Shoot. This is the way the miners celebrated going back to the 1800s. —Steve—
This is the first in a weekly series of Sunday Reflection photograph posts I plan to have. Since the creation of JamestownConnect.com the posts that people viewed the most include photos from before the Jamestown Flood. It’s my feeling that posting such photos on a regular basis may not only help in some people’s healing process, I think it can also help the recovery, in at least a small way, to have visual examples for the vision of where we want to get to as a community.
I’m pleased that Sal’s Town Photo is the first in the series which is also in the Jamestown Shoebox (see that selection under Community menu item). The photo is one of the traditional 4th of July town photos. I think this one may have been taken in 2000, but perhaps Sal may be able to confirm that.
