Other news: The late Bob Russell will always be remembered as an outstanding leader in the community and dear friend to CPC. Here we see Bob, left, at the Longfellow 2008 Fourth of July Celebration, one of his lasting contributions to Columbia, and another view of the 2008 Celebration showing CPC members, led by Frances Dawson, singing the Star Spangled Banner.
