Norway, Illinois, is Trying to Save its Temperance Hall

Read the article from The Times of Ottawa, IL, here . From the article is the following paragraph:

A dinner theater fundraiser is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 12, at the Norway Community Building, 3676 E. 2603rd Road, in support of the restoration needs of the Norsk Museum. Rob Borchsenius has written the original script and music.
The Norsk Museum has in its collection the entire Norway Temperance Association meeting minutes and Borchsenius’ idea for this play is inspired by these minutes.
After broasted chicken and pasta is served, the audience will participate in a circa 1910 meeting of the Temperance Association and join in various temperance songs.
Only 150 tickets will be sold, advance sales only at $35. For advance tickets, call Borchsenius at 815 -(edited out, see article) or go to norskmuseum.org. Doors will open at 6 p.m.
