Growing up in 1960s Willow Run

Dusty D had the privilege of hearing about one man's childhood growing up in 1960s Ypsilanti. He gave me his permission to write it up so long as I specified his name as "Dave P." I was enthralled by his recollections and I loved getting a peek at Willow Run in the background and its sometimes troubled evolution through the 40s, 50s, and 60s. At any rate, the Citizen was kind to publish the resultant story; thanks to them as always. Here's the story.

I liked the recollection of going to the drive-in. While looking up the Ypsi-Ann, I came across this site. Fun.

That is very cool! I especially love the overgrown forgotten drive-ins...wow, atmospheric! Thank you for the link, jml!
