McCOY, Colorado –An Old Timers Fathers Day Picnic was held June 21 at the McCoy Community Center, in McCoy, Colorado.

Fifty years ago a senior class graduated from good old McCoy High School. Ruby Forster introduced three of the four class members attending and they all reminisced old times. Susie Booco Bishop, of Las Vegas, was not able to attend. They all had great memories and agreed that McCoy High had been a great school to attend.
Steve Stock traveled 1,200 miles coming the greatest distance. Flogas was our member having been around the longest. Jayden Mutchelknaus was the youngest in our crowd. Door prizes were given.
A certificate was given to Old Dog and Cass for providing hamburgers, brats and providing the place every year to have it, plus everything else he does for his community. Missy and Dudley of Eagle County Ambulance District did vitals tests.
