The year was 1954. President Dwight Eisenhower had just announced the detonation of the first hydrogen bomb, the Giants swept the Indians in the World Series, and "On the Waterfront" won the Academy Award for Best Picture. A loaf of Bread was 17 cents, a stamp was 3 cents, and gasoline was 21 cents a gallon. Most importantly, three of the Reading Hash's finest hounds were born that year: Swamp Thing, Stupid Brother, and Bad Semen.
To honor these three intrepid 65 year olds (before they move on to their final retirement), the Reading Hash is proud to present the Medicare Hash.
When: Monday May 20th
Where: Wyomissing Soccer Fields Lot (behind Wawa, across from Gallen Ins in Shillington)
