Random Fun Stuff: Looking Good Edition

from the Cottage Grove Sentinel

A group of Row River ladies got all dolled up in matching gowns for an elegant entertainment at the Community Hall. This photo dates back to the late 1940′s. One of the women pictured is Ruth Cartwright, who was a resident since 1945.  Anyone know any of the others?

Random Fun Stuff: 1940′s Edition

Newspaper article courtesy of the Cottage Grove Historical Society

This photo,  from the Cottage Grove Sentinel, depicts a floor show at the Culp Creek Community Hall in the 1940′s. The show was sponsored by the Row River Sunshine Club, a community group that continues to this day.  In the years of World War ll gas was rationed, so light-hearted local entertainments were common.  People could get together and have fun without leaving town. These local men look like they knew how to have a good time!
