From The News Files - June 3, 1982
Memphis Area Mascots Club

In honor of "the third of June, another sleepy, dusty delta day" from The Ode To Billie Joe by Bobby Gentry, we go to the Memphis Press-Scimitar news files for a story when Jimmy O was the Special Events Supervisor for the Memphis Recreation Department of the Memphis Park Commission.

Coordinating citywide special events such as the Bicycle Derby, Children's Pet Parade, Safety Song & Speech Contest, K9 Frisbee Catch & Fetch Contest, and Memphis FUNFEST was not enough. I thought that it would be a good idea to "unionize" local Mascots, or at least get a good contact list so that they could come to the events that I was coordinating! Many thanks to Jean McConnell of the Sue Hick Hobby Center and Lenora Sigman of the MRD's Crafts Program for designing and making the outfit for Parky - the Fun Breathing Dragon! By the way, "backup dragon" was George Brogdon.
