50 Years Ago – 1963

June 23 – Plans for the Anderson Free Fair to be held from June 29 to July 6 have been completed in all but minor details according to Earl J. McCarel, secretary-treasurer of the Free Fair board. Main features of the fair will include Olsen carnival rides, concessions and shows; pony trotting raves for children on opening day with a purse of $1,000 offered; pacing and trotting races July 2 through July 5; and the traditional fireworks display on July 1.

June 27 – Mortgage burning ceremonies will be highlighted Sunday when Walter P. Reuther, national UAW-CIO president, speaks to officers and members of Local Union 662. The occasion marks the debt-free status of the union’s $600,000 home on Hillcrest Drive. The celebration, open to the general public, will feature tours of the building, free sandwiches and drinks, rides for the children and other attractions.

100 Years Ago – 1913

June 26 – All Anderson ice dealers will have to have regulated scales on their ice wagons after July 1, and all ice no matter how small the piece, must be weighed, according to the announcement made yesterday by William Lagle, county weight and measures inspector. Lagle states that ice men have a habit of guessing at the weight of the ice. At this time of year it is a necessity, and all patrons of the ice companies will be glad to know that they are to get exact weight.

June 27 – Ralph, the 9-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Loren Brown, residing northwest of Anderson on Perkinsville Road, has been suffering from a bad case of lockjaw since Tuesday afternoon. While playing about the house, the boy stepped on a nail protruding from a board and by evening his jaw had set. A physician was summoned.
