The original Woodsider site was started by Rich DaSilva in 1998, sadly Rich left us in 2005. With his brothers help, we were able to save most of the original web site contents. Rich and Ron were Woodsiders in the late 50s to mid 60s. Most of the photos in this site were taken by Ron who continued blend his photographic skills with his Drum Corps hobby for many years.

Special thanks to all that helped getting this set up and providing photos and support: Laura Tracy-Coll, Bob Marshman, Tom Doyle, Ed Brobst, Walt Whalen, Jeff Lawler, John Generelli and especially Ron Da Silva.
