Author Jim Fechtig grew up in Enfield, and graduated from Enfield High with the class of '67.

As a child, he used creativity to entertain himself and his friends.  In his school years, "Jimmy Don't" was the class clown, finding ways to amuse his classmates and keep the faculty on their toes. 

Read about "Jimmy Don't" drag racing on the sidewalks, graduating college without attending class and working jobs without being hired. 

If you haven't been able to obtain a copy of this book, now is your chance for a nostalgic trip down memory lane.

It's a hilarious read about growing up in our home town!!!
