Showstoppers Winter Production

Beat the winter blues with a little chocolate from Showstoppers

Coming up this weekend, Showstoppers volunteers are aiming to continue the tradition of giving back to the community with the winter dinner theater production Death By Chocolate. Proceeds from this year’s show are slated for the Pope County Historical Society and Pope County Lions Clubs’ projects.
A murder mystery steeped in quirky characters who often aren’t quite who they seem, Death by Chocolate follows the antics of detective Nick Noir as he attempts to crack a case for the owners of the Precious Perks Coffee Shoppe.
Death by Chocolate will hit the stage on Jan. 30 and 31 at Lakeside Ballroom in Glenwood. Tickets are $25 per person for the dinner and show and are available at Tom’s Food Pride in Glenwood and Starbuck.
On both Jan. 30 and 31, social hour will start at 5:30 p.m., dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m., and the show will begin at approximately 7:30 p.m. There is no reserved seating for the show. Visit www.minnewaskashowstoppers.org for more information.

Glimses From The Past

From the Glenwood Herald January 7, 1915

E.  Kaldahl’s  ice crew is busy putting up ice for the coming year’s ice cream and creamery business.  Mr. Kaldahl’s business is growing every year and it has been necessary for him to enlarge his ice house.  He has volunteered to furnish ice at cost to any farmer customers who wish to put up ice now in order that their cream may be kept in better condition for the market next summer.

Whist teams captained by David Bogie and Ole j. Quam will contend for championship honors at the City Hall this evening.  Mr. Bogie’s team has already established a record by winning decisively from J. A. Eastman’s bunch of picked players.  There are those however who expect that Quam’s team will give Bogie and his clan considerable trouble this evening.  Quam’s team is composed entirely of experts in the great Norwegian game, all of whom are imported directly from Norway for the occasion.  That is at least a report which has gained credence around town during the day.

Sigurd  Bergeson, of Virginia, Minn., is in Glenwood today.  Mr. Bergeson is the National Amateur Champion skier of America.  He won that title at the National Ski Tournament last year.  Mr. Bergeson was out at the ski scaffold last evening and this forenoon doing a little practicing.  He says our slide is one of the best in America.

Clara Ennen’s young son fractured his collar bone while skiing Monday.  The broken part was attended to immediately and the boy is doing as nicely as can be expected.

Rev. & Mrs.  A. J. Lee were tendered a surprise New Year’s night by members of the Glenwood Lutheran congregation as an expression of the good will in which the estimable couple is held and of the splendid work which Rev. Lee has done both for the congregation and for the Old Peoples Home.   Several musical selections were given and refreshments were served.  Prof. B. K. Savre who was in Glenwood at the time spoke on behalf of the visitors and conveyed their good wishes to Rev. and Mrs. Lee.  A purse of money was presented to the honored guests as a further token of esteem.
