A stack of old postcards was found in the Wedgewood attic and I wanted to share the paragraph on the early 1970’s card. “Wedgewood features a challenging 9-hole golf course, lighted driving range and pro shop. Enjoy tennis, shuffleboard, heated swimming pool or simply relax in the shade at Wedgewood’s spacious picnic grounds.”    Ahh the “good ole days”.  Welcome to the influx of youth at Wedgewood!  We look forward to being a part of their good ole days as they are created!!!
