You've got to see a vintage video clip that Jerry Ciarlino asked us to share with you. It's an old family video from 1969 that starts with family at his grandparents' house before leading into a parade celebrating 100 years of Corunna, Michigan. That was 50 years ago!!
Ciarlino said of the parade, "My grandfather, Robert Diffin, was in it. I want to say he was the one driving the little red car. He grew a beard, wore a vest and a bowler hat."
Moments later he added "Not 100% sure. Now that I see it there were several guys dressed like that;" getting a good laugh in.
