Sixty two years ago, Jimmie Forrest, L.C. Caughran, Bill Dunow, Jim Hartshorn, Kenneth Thompson, Richard Weber, Ted Weed, Alvin & Kathryn Plank, and the women of the W.S.C.S., and I am sure many more all came together and planned the first Pick’n Hoe. It was estimated that over 2,000 were served at the free BBQ in 1955. The theme was “Dove Creek’s Main Crop – Children”. Pick’n Hoe Queen of 1955 was Roberta Pinder. Last, but not least, the DCVFD set off the fireworks display as they have done for the last 61 years. (What a great department – strong and steady).
