While the Fourth of July unofficially starts the festival season, this picture (right) looks back at Founder’s Day 1991, with Katie Prater, Joanne Prater Stephens and Lydia Prater Arnett. Katie Prater, who passed away in 2009, was known for her presence at the annual festivities, announcing the baby and Little Miss pageants and the parades.
