The Junk
Yard Band

"Just outside our little town, about a half a mile west beyond the railroad tracks, sat our county dump, or as Mayor Cecil Potts called it The "Mayville Refuse Depository Site." To all us kids it was "the junk yard" and it was the never ending inspiration for dozens of summer projects. It’s where we found the wheels for the blue lightning racer, the shingles for the roof of our "no girls allowed" clubhouse, the umbrella for our lemonade stand and where, on an early August morning, we struck up the first chords from the Mayville Junk Yard Band."
