North Bend State Park, championed into being in large part by the Cairo Lions Club long ago, was established with CAIRO as it’s “home” – how fortunate that has been over time. MUCH has changed. The Jughandle campground, shared here in a postcard image, was lost when the new dam came in- thousands of families spent hundreds of weekends there along the mighty Hughes. But things change. In my family all three children (including me) worked summers at NBSP. HOW many local youth (and adults) have gained employment there aver the 63 years North Bend has been a reality?
