Miss Minnie Palenske drove a “Tom Thumb” carriage decorated with red roses and pulled by a team of Shetland ponies in the 1900 Woodman Parade. Palenske’s carriage is seen here in front of the Commercial Hotel, waiting for the parade to begin. The man on horseback wears a Woodman uniform.
We appreciate everyone who made the Wamego Community Foundation Match Day a success. 72 separate gifts were received and we raised over $23,000! The funds are used toward the rehabilitation of the facade of the Farmers Union Coop building, also known as the annex.
