    Remember playing Red Rover, digging snow tunnels, and clapping erasers? Join emcee Judy Clark for an evening of Chippewa Valley childhood stories. The evening includes dinner, "did you ever?" bingo, live interviews with Colleen Bates and John Frank, trivia, cash bar, and a silent auction. Bring a favorite item from your childhood to add to a pop-up museum created by event guests. And, don't worry, all items will go home with their owners.
