Dennis Matthews' Memories


Christmas Candy

At Christmas time during the Great Depression years inHumboldt, MN, I remember Herb Diamond handing out bags of candy from a sleighin the middle of what might be referred to as Main Street. He would parkit in the middle of the street about half way between Irving's Store onthe North and Andy Blodgett's restaurant which used to be the old HumboldtBank building. Quite a treat at the time because that act of kindness constitutedChristmas for many of us.
