91 people came out to hear Mitch Edwards' heartfelt presentation on the Mysterious Death of Curtis Cole which occurred in
1945. Mitch is a former Board member who still is active in OAHA. He learned about this case through a set of circumstances
and was motivated to do a lot of research on his own. We saw some new faces in the crowd. We hope to see them again!
