The Icon spotted "CHEER 63" in the Ada school parking lot in September. Look for it in a white Chevy Traverse LTE. Does it belong for a former cheerleader born in 1963? That's our best guess.

Lester Hahn, Dick Mericle and Bill Hart at the 1961 centennial


You are looking at Bill Hart in jail with Dick Mericle and Lester Hahn outside the jail in beards. It's another Bluffton centennial photo from 1961. Bill is in jail because he didn't grow a beard and failed to purchase a permit to allow him to shave.

Leland Gerber took this photo. Check the shadow made by Leland.You can see the round flash unit on his camera.
