Come Take a Ride on the Diamond T!
 

Recently, the Diamond T was hired by Don Gillingham and family for a tour of historic Greendale. He was a member of the first graduating class of Greendale High School in 1950.

 

Highlights of the tour included the location of the family farm on South 76th Street and the Middle School which was the High School in 1950. 
 

Driver Ted Mainella was amazed at their interest and knowledge of Greendale's history. Patricia told a tale of when Don was 9 or 10. He used his trusty slingshot to shatter the glass lamp post on his street. As a lesson for his "crime" she said Don had to "turn himself in to the Greendale police." Playing along with the lesson, Chief Bruett escorted Don to the holding cell and shut the door. "That ended his life of crime!" said Pat.

 

Members of the family stayed two nights in the House on Apple Court which is similar to their Angle Lane Original.  The family now resides in Montana and are regular visitors to Greendale.
