Richwood Founding Fathers

My mother (Phyllis Cerre Sparks) passed away recently and while I was going through her things I discovered the attached newspaper article and picture. I think the article is from the local Richwood newspaper sometime in the 1980's. Joe Cerre (my Grandfather) was a prominent businessman in Richwood years ago and I thought you might be interested in the article for some history of Richwood. The picture from 1934 is of my uncle Carlo DiTosto (also a Richwood businessman) who was married to Catherine Cerre, the oldest child of Joe and Rosa Cerre.
