The return of Old Dominion Days

David Sowders/Arizona Silver Belt Randy Hawkins brought his chuck wagon to Globe for Saturday night’s Old Dominion Days supper.

After last year’s cancellation due to Covid restrictions, Old Dominion Days was back last week for a three-day celebration of Globe-Miami’s mining and ranching history, as well as a patriot remembrance ceremony on the morning of Saturday, Sept. 11.

Festivities included a tribute to Donna Anderson and Dorothy Tippett; appearances by Lorraine Etchell, lead actress in the Western movie “The Woman Who Robbed the Stagecoach,” and Western novelist Dawn Newland; presentations

on historical and current mines and ranches; and activities for the kids, including a cupcake walk and fishing pond.

Food and music enlivened the occasion, too – from cheese boats to a Friday night steak fry; on Saturday night Randy

Hawkins brought his chuckwagon from Pima for an Old West-style supper. Concerts by The Globe Centennial Band,

Neto & Imagine and Tumbleweeds added to the atmosphere.

Saturday morning opened with the Patriot Remembrance Ceremony in observation of 9/11, conducted by honor guards from the Globe VFW and Globe High School ROTC.
