On Aug. 21, I took advantage of a chance to learn more about historic Mansfield when I took the free bus tour, hosted by Bill Beard and Faye Rydell that was part of the Senior Citizens Day activities. I really enjoyed our bus ride, sharing the pretty-full bus with interesting and interested folks. Mr. Beard’s knowledge and stories of earlier Mansfield residents and places brought historic Mansfield to life. Thanks so much for sharing with us, Mr. Beard, and thanks to all involved in organizing this fun day.
