25 Years Ago
January 18, 1995
Shortly before Christmas the wrecking ball leveled a Main Street building in Eagle Bend that history dates back to at least 1930. Last known as Maureen’s Ceramics, the building had housed a multitude of different businesses during its existence. Apparently the big, brick building that was located between the old meat market and Sir Anthony’s Family Restaurant was built about 1930 by the Johnson brothers, Charlie, Joe and Eddy; uncles of Dennis Johnson.
The Eagle Bend Junior Girl Scout Troop #233 had an excellent turnout for their January 8 spaghetti feed fundraiser. The girls began their work months ago deciding on a way to raise money for a “Midnight in the Museum Trip” in St. Paul February 25-26. They decided a spaghetti feed was the way to go!
