You've got to see a vintage video clip that Jerry Ciarlino asked us to share with you.  It's an old family video from 1969 that starts with family at his grandparents' house before leading into a parade celebrating 100 years of Corunna, Michigan.  That was 50 years ago!!

Ciarlino said of the parade, "My grandfather, Robert Diffin, was in it. I want to say he was the one driving the little red car. He grew a beard, wore a vest and a bowler hat. "

Moments later he added "Not 100% sure. Now that I see it there were several guys dressed like that;" getting a good laugh in.
