THE LORE

1877 that was the year

when Sheldon Smith settled down here

Equipped with the tools he held in his hands

he constructed his home in which Smith Coffee now stands

His craft was true and tools were trusty

his wrenched was prized albeit rusty

He reached for it once to tighten a bolt down

he realized he lost it while traveling through town

He and his family searched high and low

Mary and Amie wondered “where did it go?”

2021 is here and the quest will begin

Make a leap for the wrench we hope you all win!

In the Prairie a Depot you can catch a train
This ride is one you'll take home in vain
A view from the valley and one of a glen
In them a prize this Winter again

The courts are now falling on top of themselves
City, State and Federal or littles elves
Who did this,? Its foolish! Your map will show
McEnroe, Jordan, none of them know

Bobby the Baker baked bread every day
At night he made candy in every way
He listened to bagpipes the sweet Scot he was
Made Caramel and Butterscotch, oh just because
