Tea and history in Table Rock

Tea and history in Table Rock

“Let’s do a fancy afternoon tea!” my sister Sherry Winkinhofer said last month, “I’d like to start fundraising for a new roof for the Table Rock Theater.” And so begin an epic period of planning. We picked the place, the theater, of course, we picked a date, and Sherry began poring over her recipes for just the right food to serve. If you have never been to an afternoon tea, you should know that it’s not just about tea. Food is traditionally served on a three-tier tower, with fancy sandwiches on the bottom level, scones on the middle, and the most scrumptious of desserts on top. I volunteered a program about Table Rock’s big fire 100 years ago, and so it became Tea and History.

100 years since the devastating Table Rock fire

100 years since the devastating Table Rock fire
Article Image Alt Text

The most disastrous fire in the history of Table Rock began its destructive sway at 2:30 this morning,” began the front-page article of the Table Rock Argus of February 6, 1920. The article told the tale of events just hours before the paper was printed. As editor Frank Taylor and his staff Ott Barnes, Will Scism, and Dorr Tressler pulled papers off the press, fully half of Table Rock’s business district on the south side of the Square lay in charred ruins.

Postive change happening in Table Rock

With all the talk of the mine coming in and the potential of new population growth, I think it’s important to remember the people who are currently living here—especially with regards to quality of life and business development. Over the past 6 months, we in Table Rock have been working towards positive change in the forms of being designated as a Community 4 Kids by the Buffett Early Childhood Institute with backing from the Southeast District Health Department, and being accepted into the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Rural Futures Institute’s Community Fellowship Program. These efforts would not have been possible without Amy Hunzeker, Lori Vrtiska Seibel, Tiger Pride, and the Pawnee County Promotional Network—I am truly grateful for their help and guidance throughout this process.

So, what does this all mean?
