Music students present concert
A program of Christmas music given by the high school band, orchestra and glee clubs at the auditorium last Sunday was a big success and attended by a capacity audience. Everyone was loud in their praise of the work being done in the music departments, with compliments to the directors for the success of the concert. The opening numbers of the band, directed by Paul Gauche, showed marked improvement in their work and the numbers well rendered. The processional of the junior and senior glee clubs, led by Mrs. Marvel Hayes, singing the traditional carols brought out the fine Christmas spirit. The orchestra, directed by Mr. Paul Gauche, played its numbers with deep feeling and responded very readily to the different movements of their numbers, thus giving great enjoyment to the audience.
Sale of business announced
One of the major businesses in Two Harbors, the IGA Foodliner store on Seventh Street and Third Avenue, will change hands, effective Jan. 1. The business has been purchased from Mr. and Mrs. Leslie Engstrom by Don Carroll and Bill Young, both of whom have been associated with the business for some time. The store is located in a building occupied for many years by the Scandinavian Cooperative Mercantile Co. The new owners will operate under Don and Bill’s IGA Foodliner.
Silver Bay generosity to the rescue
When Santa had a hard time getting out of the Twin Cities this year, Silver Bay residents did a little scrambling and helped the old guy along. A change in the Toys for Tots program this year cut off the supply of toys that in recent years has flowed in from the Twin Cities, said Carol Martin of Silver Bay. “We heard about it right before Thanksgiving,” Martin said, “A new guy had taken over and now they’re mostly serving the Twin Cities.” So Martin and Barb Sterett put out the word, asking for cash donations or toys. The response was overwhelming. “We got a lot of toys and about $1,500 in cash,” she said. Martin and Sterett bought a wide variety of gifts and contacted the families of 135 kids. Martin said she was pleased with the generosity of area people, though not especially surprised. “It seems when times are tough, they come through for us every time,” she said.
