I’ve always had a weakness for ongoing fictions that grow with the years.
When I was a kid I liked “Gasoline Alley” because Skeezix grew up and his father got fat. Recently I’ve been watching reruns of the entire Walton’s dramatic series. Normally, when a TV cast member died, the producers killed her off and went on with it. But in “The Walton’s” when Ellen Corby (Grandma) suffered a heart attack in real life, the writers wrote it into the script and Corby kept right on going, even though she could no longer talk. When Will Geer (Grandpa) died, they buried him and went on with the show.
Guided tours of Dakota City Heritage Village will be offered to the public at Family and Friends Fun Days, scheduled on three separate Fridays throughout the summer — June 14, July 12 and Aug. 23. Alisa Peterson, Education Coordinator, invites visitors to bring a friend, their children, nieces or nephews, grandkids, a friend or a friend’s children to enjoy a visit to the past. They do not need to be part of a group nor do they need a reservation. Costumed guides will lead the tours, which will begin every hour on the hour starting at 10 a.m. The last tour will begin at 2 p.m.
