Bonnie's Latest WECATON Report: 20 MAR 2014:
---Just in case I failed to share this with all of you, I want to make sure you have it. It has to be quite a treasure to view. Thanks to 1973's JEAN ANN MILLER. Scroll down.
Subject: Re: WECATON NEWS REPORT!!!---
Good evening Bonnie,
Back in the 1950's there was a very close neighborhood of families between Enxing and Gibbons in WC - three of the families, Springer, Sanner, and Miller, had 3 very close little girls. Just wanted to report that one of those little girls, Janet Springer, passed away Sunday, January 26, 2014. I'm sure there are folks from the old neighborhood, (Simpson, Miller, Michael, Duncan, etc.) that remember the family and Janet.

Thanks to thousands who have written asking for the "Woody's Song" here it is! This is what Bonnie remembers. Everyone who worked at Woody's, hold up your hand!
The Woody’s Song (courtesy of Bonnie)(Sung by a mixed chorus to the tune “Turkey in the Straw”)
This commercial played often, especially on WING, which is just about the only radio station that kids ever listened (to).. remember “Gene –‘by golly’—Berry” at Berry's Wax Works on W. Third Street and our own McGuire Sisters (from Miamisburg/Middletown?)
"Shop at Woody's Supermarket down on U.S. 25,
You can save a lot of money, if you take the time to drive
Down to Woody's Supermarket, open every day and nightWith great supermarket prices…and we'll always treat you right!"
Then there's a lulling chorus, which repeats and repeats, as the volumefades......
"Shop at Woody's Supermarket, save at Woody's Supermarket (repeat and fade)
Yes Ma'am, that’s right!”
