Still Looking for Vintage Photos

This week’s photo was provided by Kay Harr. It is a picture of the 1953 Homecoming queens riding their float during the Homecoming Parade that traveled down Maple Street. Pictured are Marlene Splatt, Nancy Olson, Anne Lange, Pauline Bowers, Rose Marie Nordquist and the junior royalty. We are not sure what the order is or who the Junior Royalty was. If you can identify these individuals please let us know at The Lakers went on to a 3-13 win over Shell Lake. Marlene Splatt was crowned Homecoming Queen during coronation at 11:00 that evening.
The GTLAA is still looking for old photos.  Some have been received but more are needed, especially old Turtle Lake town and farming photos.  If anyone has old photos or negatives and wants them included in the upcoming history book, now is the time to get them in.  They can be scanned so you can have the originals back. Please contact Dave Skrupky ( or Dave Slack ( to scan your history photo.
