Here’s a photo taken of the Harris Orchard float in the 1950 Apple Fest parade.You may use the picture for whatever you wish. I have also attached a copy.The photo was taken by parents, Gene & Alvina Klug who were residents ofLa Crescent from 1944 until their deaths in 1968 & 2004. We became friendswith the Harris family about 1948 when they set up a stand in our front yardto sell apples. We lived in the house directly facing the highway from La Crosse.That young man facing the camera is me along with my brother & sister. I don’tknow who the couple standing are. I do know they were members of Prince ofPeace church. The book on the table is the Harris’ family Bible.As a teenager in 1960 & 61, I worked for Lyle Harris part-time in the orchardpicking & sorting apples. I’ll be back for the Apple Fest again this year to helpyou all celebrate.See you all next month!Dale Klug, Sacramento California
