From the Sept. 8, 1927 News Record:
Several Gillette businessmen and members of the Gillette Lion's Club will leave tomorrow morning early for the Dry Creek Good Roads Celebration. Dry Creek is located 40 miles north of Douglas, and about 90 miles south of Gillette. The delegation will meet in front of Dr. Meredith's office at 6:30 Friday morning, and all the cars will leave at the same time. It is hoped that more businessmen than those who have already made known that they are going will be on the job tomorrow morning. Gillette is interested in a good road from Douglas north through Campbell County and on to Miles City, Montana. It would materially cut distances to any part of the state as well as help the farmers through the section this road would be built. Everybody who can, turn out.
