Mid-York Weekly Clipping

Mid-York Weekly Clipping

I found this decaying clipping in the attic this afternoon and quickly scanned it before the paper flaked away. The clip is from the Mid-York Weekly, circa January 1964. Brother Larry Jenks and I are shown introducing snow to a 16-year-old from Colombia, a foreign exchange student at Morrisville-Eaton Central School. Enrique arrived in the U.S. late on the day after President Kennedy was assassinated and lived with our family during his stay in the U.S. The article, praising LBJ, the Alliance for Progress, and the friendliness of Morrisville, was the first of many unreserved public relations efforts over a long career. Believe it or not. (Originally posted in FaceBook on October 22, 2013.)
