I was talking to a friend about how popular baseball has been over the years in Holdingford. It came up that local famous baseball pitcher, Ambrose "Lefty" Ebnet back in 1937 received a baseball contract from the Winnipeg ball club of the Northern League, he disregarded their offer and signed as pitcher for twice the all salaried club in Sorel, Canada

Meeting With Minnesota 13 Author

We had a standing room only crowd at our historical society meeting with Author Elaine Davis (admittedly it's not a real large place).
There were many people there for the first time to listen to her discuss the book and ask questions. It went very well, with Ms. Davis talking about and showing some of her research on the book. A lot of folks were buying more than one copy to give as gifts. So she was busy for quite some time signing books. If you want a signed copy, Bev at the Corner Pizza and Antiques has a few . Get them while you can.
