It has been close to forty years that I have been returning to Farmington for brief visits. It is where my husband John grew up, and he still has family there. This past week-end was a special time for the town. The high school had its homecoming festivities, and in conjunction with those events, there was a celebration by the alumni of the fifty years the present high school has been in existence. Mainly there was an emphasis on the history of football at the high school since 1919. We got there Friday afternoon, just in time for the parade which included current and past football players, cheerleaders, class homecoming floats, the high school band, to mention a few of the participants in the parade. I have here a picture of one of the floats which featured football players from the past.
