April 21, 1971 Stuff

January 27, 2014

I was flipping through the Glimpses mentioned in the headline and noticed it featured quite a few moderately interesting tidbit articles and pictures. The stories ranged from a circus coming to town, to celebrating the town’s 50th anniversary to mail trucks and clean up week info and wrapping up with a Winfield artist. So for your viewing pleasure, here’s all that “stuff”…

Happy Good Ole Days!

September 7, 2012

I like using the word “ole”, when I reference the town party, ’cause that was what the original event was called. Anyways, how about a pictorial extravaganza from the 1974 “Good Ole Days” to finish up my “Good Ole Days” week? There are pictures of the parade, water fight, and fireworks and don’t miss the article about the local lady getting beef at the bottom of this post…

See y’all out and about this weekend!
