For the past 24 years the First Congregrational Church of Huntley has been having an annual dinner/variety show. Of course, 1989 is no exception - this year being their 25th Anniversary Year. The annual "Hobo Show" was held on Friday, Feb. 24 and on Sat., Feb. 25. The meal of delicious beef stew, potatoes, salad, bread and dessert was served family style in foil plates on used newspaper placemats. If you didn't get enough to eat, it was your own fault because there was plenty of food. Once your stomach was full, the unique show began. This year the Hobo Clan decided to go on a cruise for their 25th Anniversary celebration. But with no money to be had, the Hobos had to stow away on the cruise ship. Before long, they were discovered and, to pay their passage, they became the ship's "entertainment crew". The evening was filled with delightful skits, jokes and songs of all kinds. Several door prizes were presented and Hobo bags were received by all who attended. Sincere congratulations to everyone in the Hobo Show for a superb jobi Also, many thanks to each and everyone who had anything to do with this ever-popular Hobo Show! The dinner and show was a big success. Happy 25th Anniversary!
