Marysville, Kansas, Fifty Years On

2012-09-21 and 22 Marysville Kansas 1

Out on the prairie in Marysville, Kansas, there is a celebration this weekend for the high school class of 1962. I shot the homecoming parade and pep rally in the afternoon. In the evening the better part of the town turned out for a program in the city park. Then everyone went across the street for the big homecoming football game.

More than a third of Carolyn's class showed up, which is pretty good after five decades. The home town heroes were getting creamed 28 - 0 at half time so all us geezers repaired to the Wagon Wheel Cafe to knock down a few drinks and talk about old times. The spouses talked about, well, whatever. I took pictures.

Lots more to come.

When the going gets tough, the tough head to the Wagon Wheel. That works!
