It's almost that time of year again. Every Mother's Day during the 1970s, local youth enjoyed a raft race along the Neosho River from Iola to Humboldt. This photo is from 1972. Photo by Excerpted from The Chronicles of Allen County: 1946-2000

Mike Traw, IHS senior, has won an appointment to the Air Force Academy.


Picture: Emerson Lynn, Rotary Club immediate past president, and Keith King, president, are shown discussing the final details for the welcome sign east of Iola on U.S. 54 which the service club paid for and had constructed. Plans for similar signs are in the works for the south and west entrances to town.
