[Last month I included scans of all January 1964 New Vienna news.  This month it was almost impossible for me to keep up with the sheer volume of "news" that Mabel Davis produced.  Therefore, this month only included are the names mentioned with links to the clippings if you want to read further.  In future, will probably not even do that much, but only provide the highlights.  Let me know if you are looking for anything or anyone particular.]

  1. Oops! Just realized the information and the link for the news of 28 Feb 1964 is actually for 28 Feb 1963. That will be corrected shortly. One year seemed just like the next as far as New Vienna news went back in the 1960s evidently.
