The Clinton Women's Civic Club will be organizing a "Cash For Comfrey" benefit supper this Wednesday, April 15 at the Clinton Memorial building. The event will be co-sponsored by AAL Branch No. 2566. Noting the similarity in popula- tion with the community of Comfrey, which was literally destroyed in the tornado which hit southern Minnesota March 29, the Civic Club felt they wanted to do something special for that commu- nity. At their meeting Monday evening, the Civic Club decided to undertake a Benefit Supper next Wednesday, realizing the time was short, but felt that with assistance from other organizations and the area community, it could be accom- plished. They will be serving a supper meal of barbecues, salads, potato chips, bars and beverage between the hours of 5 and 7 p.m. on Wednesday, April 15 at the Clinton Memorial Building. They are asking for donations of salads and bars for the event; people willing to donate are asked to please call Shirl Botker at 839-2138. The Civic Club invites all area .people to attend this supper, includ- ing the area communities. The money raised will be brought to the Mayor of Comfrey for use by the .people of that community - again, m recognition of its size and simi- larity to Clinton and other local communities. There will be a free will offering accepted at the door - with all pro- ceeds going to the community of Comfrey. If you cannot attend the dinner Wednesday evening, you my place donations in containers at the Clinton State Bank, Clinton Super Valu, The Kitchen, or leave at The Northern Star office in Clinton.
