2977 Fairfield Times VFW photo

On October 15, 1977, the District VFW meeting was held in Fairfield. An article that appeared in the Fairfield Times of October 20, 1977 reported that over "one hundred veterans attending from V.F.W. posts, ranging from Browning to Harlem, and from Sunburst to Belt." After the dinner, held at the Fairfield Community Hall, talks were given by State V.F.W. Commander Robert "Joe" Russ, State Auxiliary President Mary Allison and Fairfield Mayor Gayle Wood.

The Times reported that entertainment was provided by "the Sweet Adelines, an all-female choral group specializing in barbershop quartet type harmony." There was also a karate demonstration, as seen in the photo, given by Pat Racicot, Mike Henning "and several youths."

We've added a new server here at the Sun Times - allowing us to store more photos and other digital files, including some of our Sun Times Digital Archives images, including these two from the seventies and the eighties.

When moving files to the new server, we just happened to notice these two images and thought we would share.

We hope you enjoy them!
