Then and now photos at Jan. 21 benefit


The community is invited to a “then and now” slide show about Frogtown and the Midway area at Half Time Rec (1013 Front St.) on Saturday, Jan. 21 from noon to 3 p.m. There will be story-telling and guessing games to go with the slides. No admission charge, but it is a benefit for the Recovery Cafe Frogtown and donations are welcome.

Recovery Cafe Frogtown hosts support groups and other activities for those struggling with addiction, or mental illness, or those who just want a place to meet others. It is located in the old Faith Lutheran Church building at 499 Charles Ave. Frogtown resident and Recovery Cafe Board Member, Andy Dawkins enjoyed putting the slideshow together. (Dawkins was also the State Representative for the area for 15 years.)

“What fun it was looking for old photos of places and signs in Saint Paul’s Midway, and then taking photos of what’s there now. We also have slides of some semi-famous residents and we’ll have a contest guessing their names,” he said. “It’s a great cause and it will be great fun.” (Photos submitted)
