Pages of History: Fundraiser to provide TV for elderly

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, January 1955 and 1965:

The rainy, dreary days of winter time in Crescent City can also be lonely days, especially to an old man or an old woman who has no family. 

This thought came to the mind of Mrs. Harry Bienick recently, and she decided to do something about it. She called Tom Gooch, local television dealer, and she called Crescent City Grange, which immediately announced the Grange would sponsor a “Brigade of Dollars” to raise funds to purchase a television set for the old people at Casa de Manana, a rest home for the aged on Cooper Street.
