Thanks to the Last Chance for providing a wonderful display of food for the noon meal. Al Butler and his sister Cindy for providing entertainment, the Chariton Middle School Band giving the parade a real touch of parade music and the community of Russell for making a success of the day. It was great to see the 1962 and 1967 class members here to participate in their school reunions.
