Harkening Back

News from Clarissa's Past

25 Years Ago

July 14, 1999

On June 24, the Clarissa Homettes Homemakers group enjoyed a day’s outing that started with a noon luncheon at the Korner Kafe near Henning. After a delicious meal, they journeyed to the Finn Creek Outdoor Museum near New York Mills, which included a visit to their gift shop. Their next stop was the Flora Lane Gardens near Riceville where they viewed many lovely flowers in a beautiful setting. The last stop on the way home was at the Dairy Queen for a treat. Many thanks to Helen Kuehne and Doris Cook for arranging a delightful trip!


Thank you for your patronage—after many years I am discontinuing business and would like to thank the people who have done business with me at Brent’s Body Shop.

50 Years Ago

The construction of the new double tennis courts began this week Wednesday at the new Clarissa Park with completion being scheduled for next week.


A lifebuoy was put up last Friday night in the Clarissa Village Park. The lifebuoy was donated by the Iona Rockbusters 4-H Club as part of their Community Pride Project for this year.
