1956 Old Home Week

Eileen Thompson has provided us with an original newspaper issue dedicated to Capreol's
1956 Old Home Week. It is an amazing tribute to the citizens of Capreol of that time; taking into account that the population of the town was half of its present size. It was six days of events, led off by a parade on Monday at 11 am, ending on Saturday with Giant Fireworks at River front.

But then Capreol was a bouyant town with dedicated citizens, and not a backyard to the city.

I am told that in those days if you wanted to do something for the town you went ahead and did it.
