Spring Diversions

There’s the time in the spring when we’re pretty sure winter is over, but it’s too early for many outdoor activities.  These items from the newspapers describe a couple of ways to pass time in early spring.  In 1933, Grande Prairie golfers could attend the indoor “golf driving court” set up in a building formerly occupied by (no kidding) Kelly’s Pool Room.  In 1950 LaGlace, as reported in the Sexsmith Sentinel, hosted a most unusual fashion show, described as a riot!  It was followed by a pie auction and the inevitable dance.
