e-mail, follow me on Twitter or Facebook, or just drop by the site once a week, I appreciate you taking the time to make reading my site a part of your day. It means the world to me.
It was a banner year for the site in terms of readership and site visits. Thank you so much for your kind words, your comments and your passion for the Red Riders. Thanks most of all to the student-athletes of Orrville, your hard work and on-field successes make what I do so enjoyable.
Here's to a bright 2011.
Now on to other things...specifically, some great sports pictures from old Orrville yearbooks.
I can not and will not take a single ounce of credit for these photos....these were made available by the Orrville Alumni Association Facebook page. There's three folders full of all sorts of old photos, this is just a sampling of some of the best photos with a sports theme.
If you enjoy looking at these, consider giving the Alumni Association a "Like" if you're on Facebook and haven't already done so.
link to the picture on facebook that identifies the other players in the picture.
(UPDATE: According to local historian Ned Hostetler, Larry's BBQ was on W. Market St. where Jerry's Cafe/Bar is now. Larry's was owned by Larry Gantz who was friends with former major league baseball player and local product Dean Chance. Cool info, thanks Mr. H.)
Here's the link to the picture that names the players on that team.
That's it. There's plenty more to look at over at the Alumni Association's Facebook page. Take a look.
Happy New Year, everyone.
