NOWHERE 50 YEARS AGO
Where are you going?   "Nowhere," I would answer.
SPECIAL NOWHERE ANNOUNCEMENT:
 
 
A Video of Rhythm's Children and the Nowhere (Requires a download that you can save or view)
 
By Howard Taylor for the Taylor's:
Melvin H., Louise, Red (Melvin)  and Me (Howard)
Our dad died in 1990.  Our mom died in 2001.  Red died in 2010,  That leaves me to carry on a semblance of the tradition.

Red was a retired Army veteran, and I am a semi-retired teacher, and earned a bachelors and master's degree at Eastern Illinois University.  I have had over 40 years of teaching, including teaching at Lake Land College in Mattoon, Illinois. 


Red was Eastern Illinois University graduate in Sociology from EIU, as well. and lived in Lansing, Kansas. 

A Photo of some of the former members of the Rhythm's Children in a new group:  Moses

Included are:  from left-- unknown (to me), Marc Nale, Gary Tate (rear), Eddie Pearcy and Jim Hite.  Red was now on his way to the Marines.  The Nowhere was re-opened and renamed Nowhere-Unlimited. It would sell and become Ted's Warehouse (bar and music).

One other update.  On Facebook this week (January 30, 2018) I found out which of the teens at Nowhere won the contest on naming the teen club "Nowhere."  Kay Kelly said that when the call for a name was announced she thought "...if your parents asked where you were, you could just say "Nowhere."  She said she got free admission to dances for winning that contest.  A new 7up lighted sign with Nowhere on it was ordered from Hendrix Bottling at Mattoon.  That is a bit of fun information. Kay says she and former Rhythm's Children member now share two grown children.
