Scott Reimer, Pam Nevitt, Erik Hickman, ** (Name removed by request), Ben Cramer, and Keith Haessly viewing a solar eclipse on Sand Island, 11 July 1991.  The eclipse proved to be a bad omen — 548th member Todd Lawrence left the islands that day, followed shortly thereafter by Pam, Ben, and Joe Pashen. And the 548th had just closed its doors. July 1991 was one lousy month. (Photo Courtesy of Allen Marsh)
