    My mom was from Enfield, and as children we always attended Mule Day. I have a 75th Anniversary pin and a handmade mule from many years ago. It’s in great shape, would you be interested in these items? I could message a photo of the mule. Our grandparents were Wes and Dolly Fields. He lead the parade riding a mule as I remember.
