The Band Boosters did the job of raising a total of $4,085.36 over the past few years with a long series of projects that finally hit the primary goal with a chicken barbecue at the Sidewalk Sale here. The $393 profit from the barbecue was realized with a big assist from Joe and Audrey Ferguson who started it by refusing to accept the change from a ten dollar bill when buying two dinner tickets. The Fergusons then asked the cost of a uniform (about $82) and wrote a check for $90, stating that they had no children to benefit, but that they enjoyed the band concerts and appreciated the public spirit of the youngsters. 60 Years Ago AUGUST 6, 1953 OSCEOLA COUNTY\u00a0NEWS and NOTES Four local soldiers who entered the service together, are still together and are now located at Fort Riley, Kansas.
