PUBLIC GIVES FIRESIDE INN HERE BIG WELCOME
Lusk's newest eating house the Fireside Inn opened Saturday with and open house and buffet lunch and served capacity crowds when they first opened Sunday for meals. Approximately 350 people attended the open house.
Mr. and Mrs. Ralph "Pete" Schloatman were extremely pleased with the reception that was accorded them both at the open house and since that time.
First dinner to be served in the new eating house was to the Lusk Lions Club Thursday evening, Sept. 9, with approximately 45 attending. All the fried chicken the men could eat was the feature of the menu with large servings of mashed potatoes and gravy and roasting ears. Other menu items were tomato juice, a big salad, relishes, hot rolls, chocolate sundae and coffee.
The men had high praise for the Schloatmans in establishing such facilities in Lusk that will permit the serving of large groups. The Lions were without a place to meet until the remodeling of the Congregational Church is completed. Monday night the Commercial Club took advantage of the Fireside Inn and some 44 people enjoyed a ham dinner served by the eating house
Several more banquets including one breakfast are already scheduled. the establishment takes banquet reservations at any time even though normally the the hours of from 5:00 p.m. weekdays and 9:00 p.m. and from noon until 8:00 p.m. Sundays.
