Documentary Being Filmed In Campbellsport Area

 By Andrea Hansen Abler

A documentary is being filmed in the Campbell-sport and Eden area. The name of the film will be Only 16: Tragedy Of 2 Billy's.
Eden native Steve Rose and his wife, Charlene, are producing the documentary. This film will look at the tragic losses of Billy Strassburg of Campbell-sport and Billy Farr of Montello. Both were killed in car accidents in the mid 1970s.
"The film will capture the personalities of the two Billys through interviews, articles and pictures, etc.," Rose said. "Filming will include childhood neighborhoods, schools, accident scenes and cemeteries. Packer Hall-of-Famer Chester Marcol, a counselor on the issues, will provide his experience and grief to aid the families."
 Rose wants to address the alcohol issues associated with the two accidents. He hopes people will learn from the mistakes of others.
But, Rose had another purpose for this film. This purpose was more personal for his friends and his wife's family. "The work is to help the Farr and Strassburg families re-ceive answers regarding each tragedy so after over 40 years they can receive clarity, communication and closure. No doubt there may be tension as the work briefly touches on the unfortunate alcohol-use elements of each story."
On Wednesday, May 10, the film crew was in Campbellsport to do some filming at Cary Serwe's home. Rose asked some of his classmates and teammates from the 1976-1977 championship Coug-ar basketball team to come for this shoot.

World War II Veterans To Be Honored In Marytown

 A few area groups have come together to honor some of the area World War II Veterans who are still with us today. What started out as an idea has turned into the WWII Veterans Commemorative Event, Memories & Mem-orabilia of the Greatest Generation. It will be a wonderful ceremony and a great way to honor these veterans and get their stories before it is too late.
The event will be held this Saturday, May 20, at the Malone Area Historic Museum, N8785 County Road W, Malone. It will run from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. with an Honor Guard ceremony at 1 p.m. Everyone is invited and encouraged to attend this event. 
Members of the Mary-town Veterans Club, the St. Cloud Harvey Blonigen Legion Post 478, the Mt. Calvary Abler/Engel Post 454, and the Malone Area Heritage Museum have been working for a few months to put this event together.
A total of 11 Holyland-area World War II veterans were personally invited and are planning to attend this event. During the day, they will receive a meal, tell some of their stories to people who will record these recollections and they will be honored by many area residents and visitors.
