A big change in the order. [news]
After several comments about images other than those of Thurmont being scattered through the album I have changed the main menu to now include additional area communties. The Thurmont images are all included under the main heading "Thurmont" with other communities being shown as seperate menu selections.

Click the button and the slide show will start, the speed can be adjusted by using the adjustment at the top right of the slide show screen.
