November 20 – November 26, 1990 (21 Years Ago)

          The Eudora Public Library hosts a book signing for a local author, Dr. E.C. Altenbernd.  His book, “35 Years in the Red” looks at his experiences of playing Santa Claus to thousands of children.  Dr. Altenbernd is now on his fifth Santa suit created by his wife.

Eudora High School students presented the fall musical, “Ducktails and Bobbysox” in the Nottingham Elementary School gymnasium.  The musical was set in a 1958 malt shop, the local hang-out for students from Grant High and the Yellowjackets, a town gang.  Lisa Dalrymple and Chad Hunsaker played the lead roles of Alice and Alex.
