Remembering Jackie Bates Report

On October 17, the community of Glidden gathered to remember young Jackie Bates, who was murdered by his own parents in 1933. Bill Waiser was invited to give a talk (and to sign books) about the Bates tragedy. Forty people attended the placement of the gravemarker and sixty came to the talk. The community raised $1000 for a new recreation centre.
