  • Forgotten Post Card Photographs of Dance Halls where Dance Bands played for guests to dance with partners, at Gordon State Park at St. Marys, and Edgewater Park at Celina are displayed.
  • Fishing and eating and meeting Friends on West Bank Road at the White Front Lunch Room with Ben Adams, and Grubbs’ Cottages gave great memories to local senior citizens.
  • Taking Boats out and stopping for a sandwich and gas at Coldwater Creek Landing provided cool refreshment on the Lake in the summertime.  Dancing on New Year’s Eve at Mercelina Park when it was so cold that the punch froze and the horses’ hooves froze to the Ice was part of the party.
