Several years ago, a small group of High School aged choir members presented the First Hobo Show on Feb. 8,1964. It was billed as the "Hobo Gourmet Dinner and Floor Show." The group, had ordered a set of English Handbells and were raising money to pay for them. Nany Johnson was the choir director and Helen Maitowe was the organist. A series of fund raising projects had been held and it was decided they should do something different. The first stage was a mall two fbot high platform on the south side of the hall. Later Ron Jirek buih a longer one od the west end. Since then. Herb Eggers and Carl Hill have made some adaptatims to accomadate more people and make construction easier. Lucille Thurow volunteered to take charge of the stew dinner. The first show consisted of songs, jokes, skits, bottle music - the same Hobo decorations and menu that is used today. Door prizes and "goodie bags" were also used at the first show. About 80 people attended the first show and it is believed they paid $1.50 for the tickets.
