A cold morning greeted those who attended the Veterans Day service held by the Lilly American Legion on November 11th at the War Memorial field. A round of applause was given to old soldier Paul “Moose” Sweeney, 95, who served as the Captain of the Firing Squad and also read the VFW prayer. He is a WW11 Army veteran.



A special treat at the horse and sleigh rides will be at 5:30 PM when Santa, Mrs. Claus and all their helpers will take a sleigh ride on the streets of Lilly, sponsored by the GBU. The public is invited to greet them and get pictures taken of the event. There are still rides available and can be signed up for at Galls Insurance Agency. The cost is only $3 per rider.

You are an old timer for sure if you can remember when just on Main Street you had M&M Leahey, C.A Hughes Company Store, Albarano’s Grocery, Greens Market, Pipers Store and J.K Georges to get your groceries.

If that’s not enough you could go around the corner to Ott Bierleys on Cleveland Street or Obester’s on Grant Street.

Lots of choices back then.
