The grandsons and I got a close look at a State Fair champion Triple “D” Pumpkin (Dave Davis of Davis County). A pumpkin this large needs the wide open spaces of a ranch to grow to this size. Congratulations Dave!
The first parade over the 2016 Leando-Douds Des Moines River Bridge – first a ferry crossing on the old territorial road between Memphis, Mo. and Fairfield. In 1898 the first bridge (steel girder) was built at this crossing. Later a 1954 replacement bridge and now the 2016 replacement bridge which we dedicated on June 25, 2016.
