School days & the Tomato Festival



Here’s one from the archives – a Morgan County Schools float in an early Tomato Festival parade. The photo appeared in the program for the Fourth Annual Morgan County Tomato Festival, held August 31-September 2, 1940. Messenger readers identified the kids, from left, as Glenn Widmyer, Ruth Ellen Banks, Billy Ambrose and Sammy Moss. If you have a “Photo of the Week” – from a school float to a castle with a moat, from long long ago or just the other day -- why not lend it to The Morgan Messenger?
