Just a reminder that Bradley will celebrate the 24th annual Governor Conway Days this weekend, March 27 and 28, 2009.
Dickie and Judy Bishop have generously shared with bradleyark.com some photos from the first Governor Conway Days on March 29, 1986. That was the occasion of the dedication of the Conway Cemetery as a state park. There were several notable speakers on that date, but the most notable by far was then Governor, and future President, Bill Clinton.
Shown in the photo below are Alice Bishop, Governor Bill Clinton, and Bryan Bishop, being held by Dickie Bishop:
(The astute reader will notice that both Dickie’s and President Clinton’s hair has changed color since then.)
And pictured in the photo below are Governor Bill Clinton, Luther Harris and Sam Gill:
And, finally, here are two photos of Governor Clinton speaking and of part of the audience on that occasion:
Let’s hope for similarly good weather for the 2009 celebration of Governor Conway Days in Bradley.
