 The Monument.  The Landmark referenced as our Geo-Target long before Navigation Systems were invented.  How many ever paused long enough to read it?

 

As of Thursday 4/8/2010 This Meyersdale landmark took on a new perspective.  Be sure to listen to that episode to find out why.

News flash:  Meyersdale resident spots Floyd Flaugherty minutes after making his phone call to the program.

Nice to have you tuning in Floyd!

The little cutie below (Tom Dahl, class of '67) is the proud owner of this 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle which is a duplicate of the car he purchased in '69 from Baker's Chevrolet in Meyersdale, PA.   Tom lovingly restored this  69 Chevelle.       Tom Dahl, owner

Awwww, isn't he cute?  Tom Dahl, class of 67 in a 1955 photo with the Queen and the Gov of PA.  You can tell he was dreaming, not of the queen but his future prom date and owning a classic car!

 

Dreams do come true.  A prom date with an upper classman.  Betty Moore, class of 66.  Two cuties.
