With the approach of Flay Day 2008 on Saturday, June 14, it is fun to look back at these old photos of Rector's Flag Day parade in 1942, provided by Claude Fielder. The location of the parade participants (at Fourth and Main Streets looking north) and many of the buildings are easily recognizable. At close examination, a sign visible behind the band says "YMBC," which possibly was an acronym for Young Men's Business Club. Is there any other information available on this wonderful photo?
