This would be a great family project. Don't know what kind of questions to ask or talk about? Go through the history sections of this website, look through the pictures and see if they recognize the photos. What grade schools did they go to, where did they go to high school, how did they get to school. Where did they go grocery shopping or clothes or supplies? What did they do for fun, do they remember winter haven during the winter or did they roller skate there later on? What jobs did they have in town. Did they hang out at the creek or on the river? Did they go to activities in the old village hall? What was it like during the flood of 65 or the blizzards.
