THE TRADING POST(Photo submitted by Helen Peebles; June 14, 2011)
If you would send me your memories of The Trading Post, firstname.lastname@example.org, I'll post them just below this photo. Does anyone know who first founded a store at this location, and what the ownership history was?
(June 18, 2011)
My parents Clare and Dortha Rowland purchased the Trading Post from Fillingers in about 44 during the war. Had a little grocery store on the side. To get 100 #'s of potatoes had to take 100 #'s of cabbage, Cigarettes and gas was rationed . I was a Jr in high school. In 45 Lyons had a winning basket ball team and never lost a game. Before their last game my dad told the boys he would put on a steak supper if they won them all and they did and we served the boys and coach their steak supper. Lost out at the tournament though but we were very proud of them.
The Trading Post sold at auction and Harold and I bought it From Morels and Shaws in 64. When I phoned my mom to tell her she said " Oh no !!! So much work" She was right but we enjoyed every minute of it. Lots of business and served lots of food as my parents had.. Penny and David were in school and were a big help to us but they thought it was lots of work too but enjoyed their friends dropping in. Lots of good memories go with the Trading Post..
