50 years ago

The American Journal reported Aug. 25, 1971, that Russ Day, president of the Olmstead Field Association, received a donation from John Cabral, trustee of Westbrook Aerie of Eagles. The amount was unreported. The association, an athletic boosters subcommittee, had a drive to raise funds for additional lights and more bleachers at the high school football field.
