Students request penny donations

The 60th anniversary of Dr. Kate Pelham’s Newcomb Million Penny Parade will be held  Saturday, May 25, during the Memorial Day weekend celebration.

Dr. Kate, also known as the “Angel on Snowshoes,” is famous for arriving at house calls on snowshoes, and it was her dream to erect a hospital in the North Woods.

To raise funds for the hospital, Pelham began the first Million Penny Parade in 1953, after it was suggested by a student from a local school.
