The Corunna Sesquicentennial Celebration continues on our HISTORY page. It's already chock full of historical tidbits and we're just going to keep adding more and more all year long.
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.
You may have already seen our photos from this year's Sesquicentennial Storybook Parade and Ice Cream Social. But check out these photos from the 2003 Storybook Parade, courtesy of Community District Library.
