    My sister and I went to a celebration in Keystone about 15 years ago. The two ladies that were there putting it on said they were grandchildren of David Swanzey and told us stories about Carrie sewing clothes for them as small children. We had a good time chatting with the two gals, but it was disheartening that there weren’t more people there. It may have been because Sturgis Bike Week was also in full swing!
