RICHFIELD SPRINGS _ Nine blue ribbon winners of the junior show 4-H dress parade held in Cooperstown last year modeled skirts and aprons over Utica's WKTV TV Show.

Those appearing from the Richfield Springs Thimble Pusher's Club were Patty Purcell, Eleanor Saltys, Helen Crist, Linda Buddle, Cheryl Lincourt, Connie Weston, Nancy Ostrander, Marna Klem and Betsy McDonnell.

The girls were driven to Utica by Mrs. John Hendricks, Otsego County 4-H agent and their leader, Mrs. Kenney McDonnell.

Mrs. Robert Weston, an assistant leader, also accompanied the group.

In the broadcast, Mrs. Hendricks, said that the articles modeled had won "excellent ratings" among the 200 girls participating at the dress parade in Cooperstown.
