Quincy, Where?

Tuesday, September 16, 2008

Jim Likens, proprietor of the Quincy, Ky. grocery store, Anita Cheatum, Kan., Barbara Gilland, Mass., Jerry Couchman, Mo., Joyce Wheeler, Clay City, Margaret Day, Brazil, Helen Duncan, Mass., (in front) Helen Coachman, Mo.
Starting from an notice published in Reminisce Magazine more than 12 years ago, an annual gathering of fellow "Quincyites" visited Quincy, Ky. this year.

Each year members from towns named Quincy, visit different states. The group started in Kansas and has visited Quincy towns in Indiana, Massachusetts, Washington, Missouri, California, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Illinois and Michigan. Next year the group plans to visit Quincy, Iowa.

Each year during the visits, planned during town festivals, the group has participated in everything from milking cows to driving a train locomotive.
