This photograph was taken of Youth Orchestra of Plymouth Congregational Church in Des Moines, Iowa c. 1927. The older woman in the center of the top row is Jennie Powers Moss Fletcher who was the director of the orchestra. At her right is Dorr Carlyle Shreves (about 16 years old) who played the violin in the group.) Jennie had a lifetime affection for the boy, who would one day become her son-in-law. The girl seated at the left in the front row is Katherine Carol Fletcher, Jennie's daughter.
