Remember When... - The Baptist Church was the only church to hold ice cream socials? - The West Park had a “Cable Ride” on the east side of the water tower? One climbed up 6 or 7 steps from the ground to a wooden platform to reach the lower bar of the iron seat where the rider whizzed along a single cable to ride the other end of the cable which was 40 or so feet long. - The Methodist Church en had their annual pancake and sausage dinner, on Thursday, in February?
