Some More Pleasant Grove News

Before the summer of 1896, a bridge stood just to the west of the Pleasant Grove Church. During that summer this bridge was taken out and replaced with a "large tile" which makes a "decided improvement". The article makes it sound as though this bridge stood about 75 yards west of the Church. A little insight into what a church service at the Pleasant Grove Church in the "Nineties" was like was in the paper when it was announced "the organ at the M E Church has been overgoing some much needed repairs. Mr Dale of Story City doing the work." Also, the Pres. of Simpson College gave an inspiring sermon which lead to the baptism at the river of 15 folks from the "home free congregation". A hard rain dispersed the group, estimated to be about a thousand, before end of the baptismal service. (Possibly a picture of this event on page 317.)

1952 Polio Scare Hits Milford Twp

Six students were affected, but none too seriously, by the scourge. Larry Sorensen `67, born in 1948, was the most severely affected. The disease struck him at a very early age. His Dad had let the Polio Insurance policy drop just before Larry was diagnosed. The disease affected his legs and feet- one foot needs a 10 1/2 shoe while the other takes a 12 1/2. His cousin, Linda Sorensen `67, was affected by leg problems. David `66 and Dennis Otto `68, brothers, were affected as were friends Jurine Borton `56 and Hazel Horness '56. David Otto, because of Polio, left school for a year. During the Polio season many events were canceled or simply not scheduled in a effort to avoid crowds. Polio vaccine, shots, came out in April of 1955!

The Senior Class girls of 1954. The ladies model their selected dresses for the prom of that year and were invited to participate in the style show that was held near the time of the Prom. From left: Doradene Brodie, Arlene Steward, Margaret Thompson, and Ruth Warren. The style show was one of Mrs Sandell's efforts, yes, the boys were there as escorts. The Stage was decorated and called "The Miss Milford Teen Shop".
The Arrasmith Service Station
This is the only picture found of the Arrasmith gas station that was on the south side of road across from the School. The view is from the west side looking east with the School across the road to the left. Taken in 1950 it shows a group of the 4-H girls. Back Row: Florine Borton `52, Ruth Warren `54, Mrs Wilma (Arnie `42) Munson, Mrs Ethyleen (Glen'43) Sampson. Middle Row: Doradene Brodie `54, Alice Hansen `55, Jurine Borton `56. Front Row: Marlene Morfey `57 and Donna Sorem `55. The station was owned by the Arrasmiths and the Glen Sampsons lived there. Short article on page 66.
