What's Happening at the Wieting?

March 23, 2017
By RLou Snyder , Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

My entertainer of the month for appearing at the Wieting is Alice Campbell. Some of the characters Alice liked to impersonate were Dale Evans, Kate Smith, Sophie Tucker, and of course, Mae West. Alice was almost always accompanied by Gerry Campbell.

Alice made her own costumes and lined up her own accessories. She dressed as the entertainer did. Her costume as Mae West was out of this world.

At times she called upon a couple of our male entertainers to appear and sing with her. They were Darrel Niedermann and Rex Crain. Those were some shows. Thank you Darrel and Rex.

Alice put on a show to raise money for the theatre. As luck would have it, the night of the show the STC boys basketball team played in the county tournament. She went ahead and had it that night.

I miss our monthly card games and our girls night out. We had some interesting Christmas parties at Alice's. Right Carol, Shirley, Sandy and Liz? Miss Kathy when you mention Christmas parties. Where did you find those magazines Kathy?

Thanks for the memories to all my girls.
