Do you remember the milk delivery to your door and your ICE BOX?
I remember Jake Lage delivering mail for it seems like 50 years!
I cannot recall who home delivered milk for the local Manning Creamery.
Are there any old creamery employees that recall who the delivery men were?

The Creamery delivery guy that Jon Groteluschen was talking about was called "Rink" (short for Wrinklebelly) Hiatt but I can't recall what his real name was.

Hi Greg,
That would be Ronnie Hiatt's brother, Raymond.
Thanks for the information.

There was a guy by the name of Hiatt in the early 1950's. I can't remember his first name but he was a brother to Ronnie Hiatt who managed Council Oaks. I rode with him during the summers.

Based on the counter for this thread, there must be some curiosity in the subject.
For those of you who have a 1981 Manning Centennial book I would suggest you go to page 138 and read about the Creamery history.
I also have the complete centennial book on my webpage linked under "Manning historical" on the left side of my main web page.

I quickly checked to see if any deliverymen were listed but did not notice any specifics...but did notice this little item of trivia that caught my eye.

{The first ice cream bars were "Eskimo Pies" which were cut by hand with a large knife from quart blocks or "bricks" of ice cream, hand dipped into a pot of melted "Hershey's" milk chocolate, then hand wrapped in their familiar foil wrappers.}

As history teaches us...we don't know how easy/good we have it today.

Many people tell me how often they go to the centennial book to find an answer to a question or to maybe resolve an argument.
Someday I believe this will be said about the 2006 Manning Quasqui book and the 2009 Manning schools history book and I HOPE someday the Manning Veterans history book.
But right now the Veterans' book project is struggling because many of the living Veterans are not coming forward or the families of the deceased Veterans are not coming forward.

What is historically important is in the eye of the beholder I guess.
