    Lol well skate south used to be the carousel. I didn’t attend St. Anthony’s but been there plenty of times. I would say both the SE 14th drive inn (where Menard’s is now) and pioneer drive inn (which is the Hartford n se 14th one)and most people will from that time will remember the Polson Auction across from pioneer drive inn.
