On Monday, November 18, 2013, Gladbrook Women’s Club held their annual Holiday Happenings at the Gladbrook Memorial Building. The room was filled with ladies attending the sit down dinner in a room decorated with the beautiful Christmas theme of “Holidays in the Village”. The dinner, as always, was served by the Gentlemen Waiters. The entertainment for the evening was the Johnson Family Strings of rural New Hartford. The Johnsons are popular throughout the area for their musical talents and are enjoyed by audiences of all ages. The entire family - Mom, Dad and all six children - demonstrates its versatility by exchanging different stringed instruments throughout the program. Their family orchestra includes violins, violas, cellos, bass, piano, harmonica, banjo and vocals, and music styles performed include classical, Christian, and blue-grass and on this evening all enjoyed their Christmas music. Following are the recipes from the dinner.
