Vol.3 No.49 Dec.31, 1969 Grace Potts, Editor
Now that all the excitement and preparation for Christmas has passed, we can
all look forward to New Year's, and more winter weather, and January and all
those bills for things which the available cash couldn't cover! So Happy!
Inasmuch as we didn't publish last Wednesday, we'll try to bring you
up-to-date on things which have happened over the two-week period.
A couple of our 'family' traveled some distance for the big holiday. Mary
Allan went to Florida to be with her parents, and Alice Williams flew to
Montreal. Her return to Detroit was delayed one day because she was snowed
Paul Cannon did such a good job playing Santa for the Kiwanis Club on
December 9 that he was asked to do it again on December 16 for the tiny
handicapped kids at Lowrey High School.
Our belated congratulations to Ann Mitchell who celebrated her 19th wedding
anniversary on December 23. That same day your editor celebrated the first
anniversary of the acquisition of her house. 29 years to go and it'! all
mine! That same day was the season's biggest snow storm. (Just for the
record, how did you like the 5 or 6 inches of the stuff you plowed through
Have you noticed the sartorial splendor of some of the male members of our'
organization lately? There are more double breasted suits showing up and
Keener is really 'in' with the new look.
According to a newspaper article posted on the bulletin board recently,
former Keenerite Tom Sankovic is now head basketball coach at St. Agatha's
The basketball 'exhibition' game between the Keener Kagers and the Harlem
Globetrotters was a terrific success. It was the largest crowd ever
assembled at Olympia to see the Globetrotters - 14,060 people - standing
room only. Promotion for this game was made only on WKNR. When the $500.00
check, presented to WKNR for their participation, was received, it was
immediately passed on to a representative of the Boys' Clubs. They, in turn,
presented to our players a consolation kit consisting of such items as
Sloan's liniment, pain killers, etc. Incidentally, the score at the end of
the game was 6-4 in our favor - (we don't say "we won," you notice.)
'The Company was highly pleased with the J&M talents' production of Dickens'
"Christmas Carol." It was heard three times over the holiday and also
received rave reviews from many listeners who called in. Their expressions
were of surprise and being impressed by the straight forward presentation.
Those Christmas and New Year's greetings you've been hearing on WKNR are the
staff personnel - we were all 'talent' for about 10 seconds.
PROJECT DETROIT subject for Sunday, January 4, 1970 is "Forecast - 1970."
Four representatives of the auto industry, banking, retailing services and
construction look at the economic aspects of the new year.
HAPPY NEW YEAR
