Rosemount to organize J.C.
The young men of Rosemount voted last Monday evening to organize a chapter of the Junior Chamber of Commerce.
At a special meeting held in the American Legion Club, attended by approximately 30 men from Rosemount, it was decided to complete organizational plans for the new group immediately and start arrangements for affiliation with the Minnesota and United States Junior Chamber of Commerce....
Other business conducted included the election of temporary officers who will serve until formal elections take place at a meeting scheduled for the next Monday evening at 8 p.m. in the Legion Hall.
Those selected were Marvin Ratzlaff, chairman; Don Ryan, secretary; Dave Toombs, treasurer; Alvin Judkins, membership chairman; and Dick Corcoran, constitution and by-laws chairman.
Chairman Ratzlaff issued an open invitation to all young men to attend next Monday’s meeting.
“We feel that every young man in Rosemount can benefit from membership in the Jaycees,” Ratzlaff said. “The organization is open to anyone between the ages of 21 and 36 and provides a means of improving our community and ourselves. Any man interested can get more details and also free transportation to next Monday’s meeting by calling Buzz Judkins at GA 3-3131.”

Rosemount history requested by women’s club
The Rosemount Women’s club is planning a program for May on the history of Rosemount and its immediate surroundings. The purpose of the program is not only to present a story in dramatized form for an open club meeting, but to develop a written history of the community.
Such a project should be interesting, educational and fun. The committee is seeking any and all history, tales and memories of the area and hopes to assemble information on old families, historic events, church, school and organization development, and folklore. Members of the committee are anxious to see or borrow old maps, deeds, documents, letters and pictures pertaining to Rosemount. Community members are also anxious to talk with people who remember incidents or tales that would be interesting to include in such a program....
So share with us your fond recollections or prized possessions to develop a wonderful story of this area.
