Throwback Thursday: Parade Day 1970

By Kristy Bleizeffer Jul 5, 2018

In honor of the 2018 Central Wyoming Fair and Rodeo Parade on Tuesday, we're throwing back to Parade Day 1970.

Memorial Hospital candy stripers piled into this convertible for Parade Day 1970 in downtown Casper.

That year, Memorial Hospital's candy stripers – high school volunteers nicknamed for their red-and-white striped uniforms – piled into a convertible that coordinated perfectly with their outfits.

2018's parade begins at 10 a.m. Tuesday, July 10, in downtown Casper. Look for our float decorated and manned by Sage and Mesa Primary Care clinics.

Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday looks back on Wyoming Medical Center’s long, rich history in Natrona County. Special thanks to the Casper College Western History Center, which archives our vast collection of newspaper articles, photographs and other memorabilia; and to "Wyoming Medical Center: A Centennial History," by Rebecca A. Hunt, Ph.D. Information is also collected from a collection of Hi-Lites, Wyoming Medical Center's employee newsletter, dating from 1982-1996.
