Remembering Arthur Smith

Mom and Dad took me and my two brothers to see this show when Arthur Smith and his Crackerjacks came to Mount Airy. As you can see by the ticket prices, the whole family got in for a total of $3.50. That was a lot of entertainment for that price. The gym was packed as most everyone in our area watched the weekly tv show on WFMY 2.
