November 10, 1960 • Boll Weevil Day is Once More a Single Event Celebration

Enterprise civic organizations, with Fred Donaldson as Chairman, were responsible for the Boll Weevil-Farmers Appreciation Day. Thousands came to enjoy barbeque, a parade and speakers. According to a newspaper article, “Each year, the day has been observed but since its inception, it has been held in cooperation with some other observation until this year. Saturday, Boll Weevil Day is once more celebrated as an event separate and apart from other activities and observances.”
