Thursday Program post (1976)
The year 1976 was the bicentennial of the United States of America. The Appleton Foxes got right into the Spirit of ’76.
Sadly, it would appear that Bob Koehnke’s Lounge – which became Pete’s at some point – is now closed. Valley Northern Bank became M& I Bank in a merger. Bohl & Maeser’s moved to Calumet Street and became a Pedorthic Center. Knight’s Jewelry is still at the same location. Are there any more Texaco Stations?
Opening Day for the Foxes was April 17 with a home game against Wisconsin Rapids. The Twins had their home opener on April 18 against the Foxes. A lot of two game series in this schedule.
