SELMA – Reader Maxine Clark of Selma has an idea we’d like to share.
“I think it would give the newspaper added interest to have a column on memories of the 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s,” she wrote.
We’re asking our more experienced readers in both Kingsburg and Selma to share memories of their youth or young adulthood from the different generations - the 1930s, 1940s, 1950s, 1960s or even 1970s.
What’s something you remember from your younger days that’s obviously different from today? School events, family celebrations, church events or hometown traditions you cherish. How about the fashion trends?
Share any photos of that event, if you have any. If you can identify who is in the pictures, please let us know (first and last names).
Perhaps a grandchild could ‘interview’ their grandparent about games they played as a child, their earliest memory of school or how they spent their summers.
There is no deadline. We’ll run them as we receive the “Remember When” entries.
