Happy May Everyone!
Spring has finally arrived in our hometown and the
activities for this month are in full swing.
This month is the season opener for the
"Melting Pot Market", and this year will feature more
artists, vendors and entertainment than ever before.
For all you Trivia Night buffs, you won't be
disappointed, just scroll down to see who will be
holding their events in the next week or two.
The "Pound Pets" Yard Sale will be held under the
Elk's Pavillion this month, stop by and help support
their wonderful work.
Thank you Jack Rainey for once again sharing your

"This picture taken in 1907 is described as "Hard times in Granite City."  Mayor Morgan LeMasters is reading to
a large gathering in front of Childs-Anderson Furniture Store on 19th Street.  It was the depression of 1907.
At least 5,000 immigrants had come to Granite to find jobs in the plants.  This was the time the name "Hungary Hollow" was
changed to "Hungry Hollow".
