CROSBY -- The Cuyuna Range Women's Club will hold its annual fall dinner Monday, Oct. 1.
The event, open to men and women, is set for 6 p.m. in St. Joseph's Catholic Church Hall, Crosby. The women of the church will cater the meal with Millie Wassen in charge. Club President Henrietta Pribyl will give the welcome and is also in charge of the table decorations. Sally Mann will provide the table grace and Kaye Frey is chair of the event.
Butch Ukura of Crosby will be the guest speaker for the program following the meal. His slide presentation will be about his wildlife safari to the Serengeti Plains and the Nogorongora Game Preserve and his climb to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in East Africa taken early in 1998.
Born and raised in Crosby, Ukura took his first trip to the Himalayas in 1996. This whet his appetite to pursue more mountain climbing. He took a mountaineering class on Mount Rainier in the state of Washington in 1997.
Subsequently, he has summited Mount Kilimanjaro and has been on the Matterhorn in Switzerland and Aconcaqua in the Andes of Argentina. There will also be a display of articles and mementos Ukura brought from his trip.
The program will include music by the Sweet Adelines, directed by Debbie Weide.
Tickets are now available at $8 each from club members. No tickets will be sold at the door and all purchases must be made no later than Thursday. Questions can be directed to Frey at (218) 546-5010.
