Quick, Call The Doctor!

This month’s historical blast from the past to celebrate the forty year anniversary of the Puddledock Press pulls from an issue from July, 1999, when the Puddledock Press was celebrating twenty years of operation. 

The front feature covers two Farmington doctors many in town will remember. Each feature was a reprint from an earlier Farmington News article. 

Below is a reprint of the article text and a photo of each doctor included in the issue.
