I had a request this week to help find a former Ardmoreite who attended
Ardmore High around 1960. His name is Mike Hilburn. His parents came to Ardmore when the airbase opened at Gene Autry back in the 50s. If anyone knows Mike and how to get in touch with him, please let me know.


Thanks to the Ardmore Industrial Airpark manager, Chris Bryant, there is now a flag pole at the Remembrance Memorial Park. Chris told me the flag pole was originally at the old hospital building at the airpark and since it was not being used, volunteered to move it to the memorial site. Thanks Chris.
