A poster from one of our “independent promotions” in Lafayette,
Indiana - May 31, 1969.
We routinely promoted our own dances in parking lots, and at the fairgrounds in
Madison, Indiana.  Pleased with our success on campus at Purdue University, we decided to rent the fairgrounds in Lafayette, and put on a dance for the general public.  We made all arrangements for the building, refreshments, etc., through a contact in Lafayette.  Imagine our surprise when we walked into the building to find sawdust on the floor, still fresh with the fragrance of a previous livestock event.
