European Culture, Dessert Day at SAC’s on Third on June 21

European Culture and Dessert Day will be celebrated at SAC’s on Third in Cambridge on Tuesday, June 21 at 12:30 p.m.

Let’s take a step back in time to the 1920s. On the national scene the Great War (or World War I) had recently ended and we were in the midst of Prohibition, and women had just won the right to vote.

Throughout Minnesota, the area had made a lot of progress. Cities as well as small towns were prospering, and many smaller crossroads communities were dotting the countryside.   Where there had been wilderness 40 years earlier, there were now farms that produced a combination of potatoes, grain and milk.

But farmers were concerned about continuing low prices for their products and high interest rates on their mortgages. A number of them had joined the Nonpartisan League, hoping that government officials could be elected who were sympathetic to the farmers’ cause.

For farm wives there were Women’s Nonpartisan League clubs. Hannah Olson was a woman who was active in her club in Dalbo Township of Isanti County. Let’s hear the story she has to tell. Marilyn McGriff will be presenting this one woman play.

Dessert will be baked by Sandra Reine

If you would like to join them for lunch, they will be serving a choice of liver & onions or a hamburger patty w/gravy, mashed potatoes with gravy, mixed vegetables, wheat bread, lemon bar, milk and coffee from 11:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Call Fran at 763-689-6555 for more information.
