For instance, did you know that the Midale Catering Club began in May of 1972? It was originally called the Midale Catering Committee and was started by Violett Stalker and was sponsored by the Midale Service Club. The president was Violett Stalker, secretary/treasurer was Denise Jacquin and other members included Edith Ironside, Madge Arts, Della Erickson, Olga Hilkewich, Alice Kerr, Lillian Heibien, Corrine Sjodin, Janice Stuart and Sharon Hultgren. Right from the start they used the rink kitchen to cook their meals in and back then they served them in the lobby of the old rink. Pots, pans, dishes, cutlery, coffee and tea pots, tea towels and anything else used was brought from their homes. They borrowed tables from the school and churches. More information on the history of the catering club will follow in the weeks to come.
Please remember to call Catrina @ 458-2887 if you would like to put any news in here.
