In 1936, one of the big local holiday events was the Grove City Business Men’s Association minstrel show.  It was held Dec. 14 under the direction of Russ Darnell and held at the Jackson Township High School auditorium.   Proceeds from the sale of tickets benefited the high school band.  Darnell promised new songs and an ample side of wise-cracks.   That was also the year Richard Barbee of Pleasant Corners says he found a way to make his cows give more milk.  He installed a radio in his cow barn and reported the cows “really appreciate the music” and actually produced more milk.  Wonder if it was Christmas carols that did the trick?
