Acquired 1996

Also, at my Open House in December 1996, another dear friend, Marilyn Luton, and her daughter, brought one of her sets to me to add to my collection. This six-piece set was handmade by the Filipino people several years ago (she wasn't sure exactly how long) and brought to her by her Missionary friends from the term they served there. Marilyn and her husband own Melody Corner, our local Ceres Christian bookstore, and she has been a manager at our bank, Bank of California, for many years. We also had students at Modesto High at the same time - they we active in the sports boosters and we active in the band boosters.
