Steele City Village Life

It has been a few weeks since our last visit to Steele City. In the meantime I hope you enjoyed learning about some of our early residents who played an important role in the Steele City community as well as Jefferson County. Their stone cutting work lives on today as a reminder of the early day Bower families .

The ladies of the community were quite busy last Friday evening when seventy-five of them were present for the annual mother-daughter reception sponsored by the Missionary Society.

Mrs. Dottie Garrett directed the program which included musical numbers and readings from all groups. Mrs. Emma Ogle received a corsage because she was the oldest mother present. Helen Ebeling Zabokrtsky was the youngest mother and baby Jacquelin Payne was the youngest daughter. Mrs. Ila Bugbee was chairman of the serving committee.
