Don Bell, who grew up in Powell during the 1930s and 40s, shared with us sometimes touching and poignant, and many times humorous stories of his childhood life in Powell. Memories of former Powell residents enrich the history of the city we call home and we thank Don for sharing with us. In addition to the primary interview video, there is an additional short video with a few more of Don's stories. The extras can be found from the meeting details or the list of videos.
