July 3, 1991 — The Stanley Homecoming continues is 25th year celebration today (Wednesday) with family night at the carnival, food and live entertainment.
Homecoming events opened Monday with the annual beauty pageants and entertainment by the Shenandoah Valley Cloggers. A tribute to Desert Storm Troops by Vietnam veteran the Rev. Aldon Purdham of Shenandoah and performances by the U.S. Navy and Country Current highlighted Tuesday’s lineup of events.
Independence Day in Stanley will have special meaning this year as the 25-year history of the Stanley Homecoming will be given and patriotic selections by a community choir will be rendered to honor Desert Storm troops.
The high point of the week will be the gigantic street parade Saturday. The lineup will be led by the Old Guard — the U.S. Army Drill Team from Washington.
