Inseparably Bound Up Together

April 2, 1932 Appleton Post-Crescent
How often did we see something like this over the years?  Did we ever?   A declaration of good intentions to lessen the tensions between the two rival cities?  And signed by some of the biggest Neenah merchants and civic leaders of the day, no less.  To this day, some of the principles espoused in this statement remain as good advice as any in getting along with your neighbors.  Granted, it was a political ad designed to garner votes for Mr. Sande, but that doesn't negate the well-intentioned sentiments therein.

  1. What profound remarks considering we live today in an era of political strife at the state and national levels.

    Thanks for sharing this historical tidbit!
