Wordless (nearly) Wednesday - Morrie Powers and Ruie Nelson

Wordless (nearly) Wednesday - Morrie Powers and Ruie Nelson

During the 1950s in Coon Rapids, Iowa, and surrounding communities the Morrie Powers band was very popular. Morrie, the local Chevrolet dealer, was on the drums. Ruie Nelson, was on piano/keyboard (did they call it that, yet, back then) - she gave private music lessons in the commuity, as well. I don't know the trumpeter... were there others in the band? This apparently was a Holiday Dance at the High School... 1956-1958 time period. I'd love to get comments. I just ran across this and couldn't stop looking at it - smiling, and remembering!  (Ruie was one my Mom's best friends - Mom also played piano and gave music lessons.) (My Dad was regular customer of Morrie Powers Chevrolet - never drove anything but Chevy in the middle part of the twentieth century!)

Families are Forever!  ;-)   ... but good friends are really important, as well!  ;-)
