Some pictures and a great little story submitted by Jim Sowar:
During the Coldwater Centennial of 1938, my Dad played the role of David Buzzard -propped behind a counter of his General Store; along with a couple of village “loafers” (LaMont Hoyng and Ivo Haslinger) . One of the many skits that day Was:
Little Jimmy Sowar (I was 6 at the time) came into the store carrying a gallon bucket and said “My Mom wants me to get a dime’s worth of molasses”! “A dime’s worth of molasses, Sonny? OK” as Mr. Buzzard turns to his spicket . Meanwhile Ivo and LaMont were griping about the weather or whatever.
“Well here you go Sonny – here’s your molasses, now how about that dime!” “ MY MOM PUT THE DIME IN THE BUCKET” as little Jimmy grabs the bucket and runs out the front door!!!
(My Mother had me practice my lines for at least a week before the show!!!)
