Citizens purchase chances to Win 1966 Pontiac given away on Saturday night.
Many combined efforts to Produce Ox Roast
Munching "ox" sandwiches, squealing at the dizzy
rides, and strolling down the bustling midway were
only a few of the many excitements of the 1966 annual
Centerville Ox Roast. Under the direction of the Cen-
terville Lions' Club and Parent Teacher Association, the
Ox Roast provided hours of fun for the youth and adults
of the growing community.
For many years the origin of Centerville's Ox Roast
has been subject to confusion. Some citizens say it was
first started with garden parties held in 1935 for the
benefit of the school band, While others claim it began
with the dedication of the Centerville Water Works.
In 1939 the Parent Teacher Association took charge
of the Ox Roast festivities. After being discontinued du.r-
ing the war years, the Ox Roast was again revived in
1946 by the Lions' Club to raise money for a new ath-
letic field. It was so successful that it was possible to
purchase seven acres of land which is now the CHS
football stadium and practice fields.
A product of the time and effort of the entire com-
munity, the Ox Roast is now annually a tremendous suc-
cess. Adults and students alike volunteer their services
in operating booths, presenting plays, and preparing
refreshments. As a result, money from the Ox Roast
provides Washington Township Schools with new and
more modern equipment and many "extras" that would
not be available otherwise.

Families hosted thirty-tive exchange students
After studying one year in high schools throughout
the country, exchange students from more than 50 na-
tions tock bus tours to broaden their concepts of the
United States. The Centerville chapter of the American
Field Service hosted thirty-five of these students for
their three-day stay in the area.
Arriving on Iuly 11 the foreign students of bus num-
ber 62 were met by their host families from the Center-
ville area. After spending an evening getting acquainted,
the students were taken on various tours arranged by
their host families. That evening six groups of stu-
dents and families met at various homes for the eve-
ning meal and then attended a Centerville Iaycee-spon-
sored sockhop. On the third day the students were
given a tour of Frigidaire. They also had a swimming
party at Woodhaven Swimming Club followed by a
chicken dinner and a talent show put on by the ex-
change students at St. George's Episcopal Church:
Following other stops in the United States, the stu-
dents started home to their native lands with a better
understanding of this country and its people.
