Ready for the Holiday


Lil Sofia Giving the New Infant Swing

a test run soon after the bolts were tightened.
The fire dept had to cut a teenager out of the old one as he had gotten himself
jammed in and unable to reach the ground with legs turning blue.
I missed that picture.

A Popular Event in May

"Dumpster Day"


Early birds got wet. 4 dumpsters and parking lot overflowing.
It may be the last year for "dumpster day".
The Town has contracted for trash pickup starting in June.
The trash haulers will pick up all your weekly trash and have a monthly schedule
for pickup of all your large items. There will be no need
to accumulate or save for dumpster day anymore.


Couldn't resist.





Crossed the street to

get a closer look (sniff).





A Real First Class Program.

Who Remembers April 3, 1974

One of the first images that confirmed tornadoes can have multiple funnels.


Hello, my name is Michael (Mick) Deckman and I live in Parker City, Indiana. I was born on the northeast corner of N.Fulton St. and E. Oak St. one block south of the ole Parker School Building. I spent my school days living 2 houses farther south at 227 N. Fulton St. I graduated from Parker High in 1958. As I was not a member of any of the great basketball teams of the time, some of you may not remember me. I earned my letters playing baseball. I have operated the town's water plant since 1966 and have seen many changes in the town, some good, some not so good. Although the downtown has lost several buildings and businesses, there are many new ones on the highway now. After several years of decline, Parker City is back. The Street Fair Homecoming has returned, with fireworks on opening night, and new homes are being built on the southeast edge of town. My roots are here, my life's work has been here and I'll probably die here. I have tried my best to make this town a good place for all to live and now through these pages, I'm bringing Parker City to you and the world.

As you can see, there are images of present day Parker City, some news, highlights and history.
It all began on the evening of May 10,1998.
