Cannelton traditions: Sisters of the Swish

-A A +A

In 1962, Margaret (May) Schank won the prettiest dress for Cannelton’s 125th anniversary celebration of the Sisters of the Swish.

Schank is pictured above with the late Beatrice “Tannie” (Claycomb) Yaggi, who was runner up, during the parade that year. For this year’s 175th anniversary, Schank will once again don her dress for the Cannelton Foundation’s parade Sunday and the Old Time Fashion Show Oct. 13. Joining Schank will be Patricia “Patty” (Yaggi) Seibert, daughter of Beatrice Yaggi, who will wear her mother’s dress from 1962 in her honor.
