Wonderful memories of Mr. Brideson. Both Mr. and Mrs. Brideson were Sunday School teachers for me when I was a little girl. Back in the 50's before velco, my favorite memory was Mr. Brideson attached flannel material to a large plank of wood. Then they made figures out of flannel of people, animals, houses, trees, etc to attach to the flannel board, to tell stories from the Bible. It was Mr. Brideson's job to carry all of this from their car and to different class's. He always did it with a huge smile and laugh.

I knew Bill as a fellow member of the Greater Washington, DC Area Manx Society. We both served as president and enjoyed seeing each other (along with Doris) at many Twelfth Night parties and Annual Dinners.

This photo was taken in 1986 at a New Year's Day party in the home of native Manxman Garrick Lightowler. Pictured are Mary Beth and Dirk Ramsey-Spencer (who also later served as president). A partial view of founding member Avril Shipman is on the far right.
