Auditorium rededication at 4 Friday afternoon
Icy weather made travel difficult for building's first event
January 19, 2023
On Jan. 29, 1937, the Superior Auditorium was used for the first time. The occasion was a 55th birthday party honoring President Franklin Roosevelt with the proceeds going to fight infantile paralysis.
Though it was an icy, miserable winter night, 544 people attended the party. The program featured a variety show in which one of the dancers was Superior’s own Patty Lou Mason of Our Gang Comedy fame.
In many regards, the event planned for this Friday is patterned after the 1937 party though hopefully the winter storm predicted for this area on Wednesday will be gone by Friday.
