Story from Cindy Hamilton

Hi June,

I wanted to thank you for your post and pictures about the Spanishtown Dons. My mom

was Patsy Speer, the featured twirler who marched with them, and I came

across your blog while doing some research for my own blog post about her.

We still have a big, yellow steamer trunk in the garage that says “Half

Moon Bay Dons” on it. It was our toy chest as kids.

We lost mom much too early in 1994. If you’d like to know more, please click here

Best regards,

Cindy Hamilton
