"We thought this was a wonderful opportunity to give back to the community since many fond memories were made in Springfield," said Lucile Stecklein.
Steckleins raised their three daughters—Beverly, MaryLou and Patricia—in the Springfield area.
At the time, they lived on Stecklein Road in Pingree and had a store in Springfield.
