Ken Nohavec's 75th Birthday Party Is This Friday

At this time in 1941, Franklin D Roosevelt was president as the nation debated whether or not to enter the second world war.

Congress had passed the Lend-Lease Act, giving president the power to sell, lend, and lease war supplies to other nations. 

The U.S. population was 133,402,471.

Federal debt had ballooned to $57.5 billion under FDR's New Deal.

U.S. unemployment was 10%.

The cost of a first-class stamp was $0.03.

And Dorchester-area farmer Ken Nohavec was making his grand entrance into the world. 

Ken turns 75 on June 23.  To celebrate, his family is throwing a birthday bash at the Dorchester Legion hall this Friday, June 24.

In Ken's honor, an open house and social will take place from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

A wild and crazy polka dance -- with the Polka Dudes -- will start at 6 p.m., going strong until 10 p.m. 

Birthday cards may be sent to 747 County Road 1800, Crete, NE 68333.
