It was a quiet afternoon, just about suppertime. A few of the neighbors went outside to stand by the road.
This is Chicopee, Massachusetts. As most New Englanders know, the Eastern States Exposition, or the "Big E" as we call it, the annual state fair for all of New England's six states is currently going on across the Connecticut River in West Springfield. The Budweiser Clydesdales always show up for that.
Congratulations to Mr. Thomas Peloquin, who won the prize raffle sponsored by the Williams Distributing Company of Chicopee.
