The following lines from Geraldine Fitzgerald Dobbe, `59:
"One of my favorite memories of Milford Twp. was when we would have toboganning parties on a winter Sunday in our timber. Everyone was invited!! My dad, John Fitzgerald, used his John Deere to hook up a tow rope to pull us up the hill. Hot chocolate was served afterwards in our garage.
"I can still remember the high school students spending a day in the spring to go to the Boone Ledges State Park and also to I.S.U. Veisha. Our trips to Des Moines for the state basketball tournaments were also something we looked forward to. I think we stayed at the Fort Des Moines Hotel. Many great memories were made on these trips."
Edit: That wonderful sledding hill is now "under" the Interstate in the very north of Sec 5.
