Fun was had by all at the Preble County Historical Society’s Old Fashioned Independence Day festivities. Fireworks, clowns, tours, and music were enjoyed by all. This writer had a true trip down memory lane when members of the Country Roads Band now known as The Worley Boys played tunes from years ago. Thank you PCHS members for the great show.
