How ‘Bout Some Good Ol’ Days?

March 22, 2013

We’re sort of around the halfway point to the next Winfield Good Ole Days…and I don’t know about you, but I could use a dose of it right now. So for your viewing pleasure, I’m posting a bunch of stuff about the 1976 edition of the town event…

The April 1951 edition of the Glimpses included a travelogue of sorts, with details of several residents recent trips. Let’s take a look back and see where they went…

Miss Winfield Revisited

March 15, 2013

I’ve covered this particular pageant before (Miss Winfield 1968), but I found this picture/article while I was browsing through Glimpses microfilm at the Winfield Public Library this Winter, and it has a few more details about the contestants (Joan Bartlett, Lynne Bourke, Judy Doyle, Jeanie Hope, Mary Jordan, Chris Knippen, Carol Lewis, Jan Nemeth, Cathy Slivinski and Karen Webb) and the event. Unfortunately the picture was a bit dark in places on the microfilm, so as a result the image isn’t the greatest, but I thought it was still worth posting. Have a great weekend…
