Sad to hear that George’s can’t be saved

To the editor:

It was sad to read in The Journal that the George’s Ballroom building cannot be saved.

My husbnd, Keith, was a musician and played trumpet with the New Ulm bands. On several occasions, George asked me to sell tickets up until the dance ended at 1 a.m.

Another note: At that time, in the 40’s and 50’s, women were not allowed in the ballroom unless they were wearing a dress or skirt.
