Homecoming
(Continued from page 9)
a very funny entry depicting
“school days,” with a group of
teachers dressed as kids and en
gaged in the old and honored
practices of throwing spit-balls,
aiming pea-shooters, sneaking
off from the classroom to go
fishing, etc.
The parade was kept in step
by the colorful Bloomfield high
school band, which did itself
proud as it strutted up the Mid
dlefield streets. Each entry stop
ped at the reviewing stand to
receive a close inspection by
the five judges who were to
award the many prizes. Not
competing for prizes, but never
theless forming an important
part of the parade was the Mont
ville and Middlefield Fire De
partments, their screaming si
rens emphasizing the vital parts
these men and equipment play
in the lives of their communit
i ies.
Immediately following the big
parade, the crowd was directed
to the school playground, where
the young fry engaged in many
tand varied athletic contests with
prizes for all winners. Then the
“Midway” where the entertain
ment and consession stands af
forded sport and enjoyment for
all, helping them to work up
good appetites for the forth
coming fish-fry.
The meal proved as success
ful as the afternoon's activities.
The food line which formed at
five o’clock filed through Me
morial Hall steadily for 31/^
hours. Plates piled with savory
browned fish, french fries and
salad were consumed by town
folk happily discusing events of
the afternoon and looking for
ward to a night of dancing and
reviewing of old friendships. Ac
ross the street from Memorial
Hall, the Midway, ablaze with
lights and complete with hust
I lers, hawkers, games of skill,
candy and cake consessions,
food bars and all the various
booths which go to make a Vil
lage Homecoming a very special
event in the history of a small
town.
Next to the midway and sit
uated exactly where it should
be “on the Village Green” the
Geauga County Fair Band sat
in concert from 8 p.m. to 9:15.
Highpoints of the concert were
the band’s exceedingly clever
arangement of “The Circus
Band” and Bob Eppley’s fine
rendition of “Because.”
From the band concert, the
crowd strolled the midway, fin
ally ending up at the dance in
Memorial Hall. Decorating com
mittees working Friday night
had projected the holiday mo
tif to the hall by draping crepe
paper streamers from light fix
tures to wall and creating a star
studded back-drop for the or
chestra. Paul Weed and his band
furnished the music and what
with whistle two-steps, polkas
and round dancing, the crowd
was kept happily hopping until
the wee hours of Sunday morn
ing.
One a m. marked the close of
activities and amid calls “Stop
up for coffee” and “see ya at
next year's homecoming” a tir
ed but delighted townfolk found
their way to cars glistening with
a cold late evening rain. Happy
as the merrymakers were, none
was as overjoyed as the group
of hard working firemen and
Chamber of Commerce Commit
tee members who by virtue of
sweat and long hours had pro
vided their home town with an
event long to be remembered
