CAPTION: Fifty years ago, a photo of this I-75 billboard graced the front page of the Onaway News. It's what the Onaway Chamber of Commerce was doing to boost Onaway. In other Onaway News, a new chapter of TOPS (take off pounds sensibly) was formed in the community...Also, Pvt. John M. Perkins of Onaway completed a vehicle mechanic course at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. At the school, buttered whipped potatoes was on the Lenten menu on Friday along with cheese slices, milk, tossed salad, buttered corn, hot roll and jello.
