A Look Back in Time: May 14, 1919

Now here's Sheridan Media's look back in time, to 100 years ago, by reporter Pat Blair as published in the Sheridan Enterprise newspaper on May 14, 1919.

With more than $14,000 subscribed in the drive for $20,000 for the Commercial Club’s budget for the fiscal year, the teams in charge of the campaign voted at noon today to extend the closing time for the drive for at least another day.

The Sheridan Brewing company will start making a new product on June 15. “Sherex” will be a non-intoxicating drink that will take the place of “Sheridan Export,” the beer that has made Sheridan famous. The new drink will contain 1 percent alcohol.

Many young people of Sheridan are joining the Winchester junior rifle corps, a national organization of girl and boy shooters.
