Out of the attic

More Red Flannel Day photos

N-Out-of-the-Attic-RFdaysIt’s another blast from the past. Ed Bremmer brought in a stack of photos he’s taken on Red Flannel Days past, and we came across the two gems pictured here. The one from 1978 features a group of teen girls called the “Lumberettes.” Who remembers this? Do you know anyone in the photo?

The second one is of Red Flannel Festival founder and Clipper newspaper editor Nina Babcock, when she was Grand Marshal in 1979. She and Clipper publisher Grace Hamilton were the impetus behind us becoming the “Red Flannel Town” and helped create the Red Flannel Festival to celebrate that in 1939.

The two Clipper girls are both buried in Elmwood Cemetery.

Thanks, Ed, for bringing us those photos!
