Scouts, sales, singers and salutes all were in the news during January 1966. Boy Scouts in Troop 21 were goin’ west — a bunch of the guys were making plans to visit the Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron, N.M., during the summer.
Paint brushes, hammers and floor tiles were goin’ on sale at Grossman’s on Erie Boulevard in Schenectady. The new store opened on Jan. 19 in quarters once occupied by the Delaware & Hudson Railroad. And Salutes came to — and from — high school students.
