Time Travel: City Men Contributing to Community at Church Event and Don Knotts at The Hotel Morgan

By Dick Duez on December 17, 2017 from History Blog via Connect-Bridgeport.com

There should be some familiar faces here as these men who gave plenty to the community are shown preparing a Bridgeport meal for the city and beyond at one of Bridgeport's churches. If you have any information as to the men pictured, the church and the event feel free to share it below.
Look like someone famous? It is. That's Don Knotts shown several decades ago back in his home state of West Virginia in front of the Hotel Morgan in Morgantown. The photo was taken in September of 1957.
 
Editor's Note: This ongoing photo feature of pictures from Bridgeport and throughout the Mountain State is part of local historian Richard 
"Dick" Duez's collection. Duez, the unofficial historian of Bridgeport, would appreciate any scanned photos emailed to him for use here or to include in his ongoing efforts to preserve local history. You can email photos, or let him know how to acquire copies of photos you may have in your possession, to Duez at dick.do@frontier.com.
