(Photo by Glenn's Studio) Valvicks, Swea City, Recount Florida Trip SWEA CITY - Mr. and Mrs. Roy Valvick returned March 10 from Florida where they and the Dean Swansons, all of Swea City, enjoyed a month or more sightseeing and visiting in and around that state. Following is an account of the trip and its highlight by Mrs. Valvick. "The first 500 miles were good driving because of our good highway men who got out with • By Justin, Texas, Wrangler. plows and salting to keep our roads good, but after leaving Springfield, Mo. we had terrible icing conditions and many cars in ditches because of no road cure and plowing of the roads, :t.s Springfield and all through Arkansas had a bad storm. "We drove to Vicksburg National Cemetery and wondered il we would ever get out of there (and you don't until you've driven all the battle fields and monuments of each state). "We drove on down to New Orleans where we toured the city, both old and new Orleans, and the harbors, the second largest in the United States. "At Mobile, Ala. we drove through Bankhead tunnel, under the river, and on to Panama City. The once beautiful drive from New Orleans was marred by destruction of the tornadoes that struck at Biloxi and Gulfport, destroying beautiful churchs, homes and boat docks. We drove to Perry, Fla. where we cut inland to . Apopka, the flower and plant capitol of Florida. Vegetables are also grown in the musk land there. "We went to Disneyland, which is not ready till October 1, but is to be 10 times larger than the one in California. It will be fabulous to see and has caused Florida to grow by leaps and bounds. "We visited the Space Center or Cape Kennedy and took a NASA tour, which took all afternoon, and viewed moon rock brought back by the astronauts. Saw them getting the launching pad and capsule ready for the next moon trip in July when the astronauts will ride 30 miles in a dune buggy on the moon. "In Orlando we visited Mrs. Edward Piotter several times at Florida Hospital. She and her husband had been visiting the Harold Joos when she suffered a heart attack and was hospitalized for three weeks. We visited the Joos family, son of Mrs. Poitter, also Mrs. Gladys Fults at Eustice, Fla. Had a long boat ride on the lakes there and through the Dora Canal. We also visited a cousin, Mr. and Mrs. VoigtHovey of Grand Ledge, Mich. "The orange trees were frozen badly and much fruit wasted on the ground, but the trees had started to bloom again and will recover fairly well. "We had never flown so decided to fly home by Whisper jet (where the engines are on the tail of the plane). It was a thrill, indeed. "Mr. and Mrs. Swanson returned home by car, bringing fruit and miscellaneous items. They visited their daughter, Robyn, who teaches in Sterling, 111. "Mrs. Irving Valvick and her sister, Mrs. Frank Doden of Woden and Mrs. Thomas Menke of Bancroft were in Florida visiting their mother, Mrs. Poitter, after she was hospitalized." - o - AUXILIARY MEETING Lt. Harry R. Montgomery Auxiliary to Post 3963, met at the Post home March 15.
