Swanton Garden Club Readies for Memorial Day
The Swanton Garden Club was out in force today, planting flowers around the Doughboy Statue in Memorial Park. Swanton will be having its Memorial Day Parade which will begin at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, May 30, and finish at Memorial Park with a presentation to be given at the Doughboy Statue.
And speaking of the Swanton Garden Club, they will be celebrating their 90th year anniversary this summer and will commemorate the milestone that began in 1932 with a float in the Corn Festival Parade. That first year, in the depth of the Great Depression, the Dow Jones Industrials hit 41.22, a record low.
On the positive side of things, Script Ohio was spelled out for the first time in Columbus at halftime of the Ohio State-Michigan football game by the University of Michigan Marching Band. The Buckeyes reciprocated the gift by allowing the Wolverines to win the game 14-10.
