Parade Marshals, Howard and Losie Lamb Dye

The Grand Parade had a beautiful backdrop with cool sunny weather and freshly turning leaves. The parade had a patriotic theme. Dozens of county fair games from cake walks to three-legged races highlighted the day, along with country cookin'.

Well-known Chloe residents Howard Dye, 93, and his wife Losie Lamb Dye, 85, served as the Parade Marshals. Dye is the son of Dr. J. A. Dye, who practiced medicine in the West Fork region in the early part of the last century.

Howard Dye's uncle, W. T. W. Dye was a Grantsville physician during the same period. Losie Lamb Dye was the daughter of West Fork veterinarian, Charlie Lamb of Walker.
