Memories Gone By

News from Browerville's Past

25 Years Ago

Christ the King was the place to be on Saturday for hundreds of LaVyrle Spenser fans who stood in line, many for over an hour, to have their books signed by the author. LaVyrle was a really good sport and didn’t mind being interrupted for a photo. Pictured visiting with her are Father Thielman, Sandra Blenkush and Catherine Krogh.


Browerville royalty crowned Friday evening were: Vicki Wiersgalla, Miss Browerville, with Little Miss Stephanie Wiersgalla; First Princess Jill Motzko with Little Miss Julia May; and Second Princess Kaja Host and Little Miss Brittany Kalina.

75 Years Ago

The OTW league ball club from Clarissa, still smarting from a 21-2 defeat handed to them by the local club a few weeks back, appeared at the Browerville High School athletic field and trimmed the locals in a good baseball game last Sunday afternoon by a 3 to 1 score. An extra large cheering crowd was present to witness some very good ball playing.


Mrs. Mary Jane Gorghuber, who was chosen “The Browerville Dairy Days Queen” on June 20, will compete in “The Aqua-Belle Contest” at Wadena on July 7 and 8. The Wadena Jaycees and KWAD, co-sponsors, are making plans for the Chuck Wagon Races and Cowboy Thrill Show to be held in Wadena in conjunction with the show.
