Memories from Childhood in Excelsior Springs

Kent Dickey posted a photo of he and his sisters sledding on Marietta in 1959. This photo is extra special because it features his sister Jackie, who is on the sled with Kent, and passed away recently on December 13th.

With snow in the forecast, I knew that there would be kiddos all over Excelsior excited for something new to play in. I can remember from my own childhood growing up here, bundling up like Randy from A Christmas Story and heading out to make snow igloos with my neighborhood friends. I thought I would ask Excelsior Springs what their memories of playing in the snow bring, and their responses were truly magical.
