May 5 Historical Society Program to feature speaker Karen King

GLENWOOD CITY — Karen King will be the guest speaker Sunday afternoon May 5th, at 2:00 o’clock, at the Glenwood City Community Center. She has been invited by the Glenwood Area Historical Society to speak and demonstrate all the uses she has found for the extra milk she gets from their one cow “Buttermilk.”

Karen and her husband Frank moved into the century old abandoned Tramway Cheese Factory south of Boyceville in 1998. Tramway hasn’t produced cheese since 1970 and she had no idea she would be crafting cheese in that old building again. She uses raw milk as well as pasteurized milk she buys from the store.

Karen is a self-taught home cheese maker and has shared her knowledge with community-education classes at the Boyceville Community Center. You will enjoy hearing her stories.

Also included in this program will be the first part of a series called “TIME KEEPS MOVING FORWARD,” telling about the many different products that have been manufactured and invented in Glenwood City and the surrounding areas back in a time when people obtained their needs locally.

Join us Sunday, May 5 at 2 p.m.  for our program on “EVERYTHING TO DO WITH MILK,” and enjoy a free will offering lunch following the program.
