Apple Creek Parade 1965002

2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the Johnny Appleseed festival and we will begin our look back with a picture from the very first parade. The year was 1965 when an 18 year “young” Curt Morris lead the procession on horseback followed by Bob Marthey, Forrest Messner, Web Stauffer, and an unknown veteran as color guard. Note the “Snack Shop”, Apple Creek Bank, and Kener’s Store in the background.
