Scribblings: With a variety of entertainment and talent lined up for the forthcoming Blue Jeans Festival, it appears that everyone should have a good time. All those who enjoy country music will certainly want to hear Glenn Canyon and his band, “The Country Playboys”. They have toured throughout the tri-state’s area and have been billed with many of the Grand Old Opry stars. Glenn is a native of Harrison, Ohio. Barbershop quartets from Lawrenceburg will present some of that good old-fashioned harmony. All the featured entertainment, being paid for this year by the merchants, is in addition to the many other attractions. The festival gets underway July 3 with a big water-ski show. There will be crowning of a queen, a pet parade with prizes to be awarded, a flea market and antique sale, an ox roast and parade on Saturday.
Miss Sherry Lou Dibble left by Jet from the Greater Cincinnati Airport Tuesday for Los Angeles, California, where she will be employed during the summer months.
Dads are kind of special
In so many different ways
Many times they work so hard
But get very little praise
They have lots to think about
And they try to do their best
And you will find dads everywhere
North and South, East, and West
But I know you are fondest
Of the one you call your own
And gee, you wouldn’t trade him
For one more famous or well known
So show him that you love him
And it’s better not to wait
He won’t always be with you
And some day ’twill be too late
Why not let him know you care
By some loving word or deed
Or maybe write a letter
That he would be pleased to read
