The Passing Scene – May 6, 1967

It's been a while since I posted one of Gene Patrick's The Passing Scene cartoons, so here's one that ran on May 6, 1967 – 46 years ago yesterday. (Click on it for a larger view.)

It features some nice caricatures of Mayor "Woody" Mathna and Joseph Zahorec. (Woody prevailed in the election.)

The third panel designating May as "clean-up paint-up fix-up month" reminded me that Loraine Ritchey asked me to mention on this blog that May 18th is Lorain Pride Day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. To find out what you can do to help, visit the official website by clicking here.

Volunteers are needed to select an area in the city that they believe needs to be cleaned up and to, well, clean it up! The Lorain County Solid Waste District will provide the trash containers and trash bags, and the City of Lorain will pick up the trash and waste and dispose of it. What a deal!

"The Passing Scene" was always one of my favorite Journal features.
