Today in Rip Payne

On this day in 1986, Rip Payne attended a Kiwanis picnic, where he not only took pictures of his friends, but got to sit in the hot seat himself for a few shots.

Rip Payne himself, sans eyewear but with his wedding ring and a hat proudly declaring his attendance at the Kiwanis picnic two years earlier.


The Kiwanis club of Charlottesville has been the subject of many of a Rip Payne image, and now we understand why—he was a member himself.

On this sunny July afternoon, the group gathered for barbecue, brews, and horseshoe.

Doesn’t sound too bad, eh?!

On this day in 1940, the Albemarle Charlottesville Historical Society held it first meeting.  Unfortunately, Rip Payne was not there.


Today in 1974, Rip Payne was over at the First Methodist Church snapping shots of an Eagle Scout presentation ceremony.

Then, today in 1987, Rip enjoyed a day at the Boar’s Head Inn in celebration of the Charlottesville Kiwanis‘ 65th anniversary.  I’m going to leave it to you to tell the difference between boys and men here.
