Anticipation Builds

Along Main Street

Art Boden and son Dan were renting parking spaces this morning at The Bank of Cooperstown, which provided the space to raise funds for Friends Helping Friends, an group that grew out of a community effort to raise funds for Art at the height of his fight against cancer two years ago.  Art expected to rent out 30 spaces at $20 apiece each of Induction Weekend’s two days, netting more than $1,000 for the community group.  At left, by 10 a.m. today, folding chairs lined the Main Street route of the Parade of Legends, which steps off at 6 p.m. this evening between the Chestnut Street fire hall at the Hall of Fame.  The 60-some Hall of Famers, including the five soon-to-be Hall of Famers, will be carried along the route in Ford pickups provided by Smith Cooperstown.  (Jim Kevlin/
