Welcomes Maid-Rite’s return

To the editor:

I welcome the Maid-Rite with fond memories. I graduated from Fort Dodge High School in 1945 and worked in the Maid-Rite on North Ninth Street behind the old post office for over a year prior to graduation. Maid-Rites were then 15 cents each, a large order of fries were 10 cents and a large bottle of pop was 5 cents. We were to get 16 Maid-Rites to a pound of the ground beef. I never could get 16, mine were always good buys. Meat was rationed at that time because of the war and we were very busy.

Dick Ziems, Jack Griffen, Otis Halligan and Bill Becker, among others, were regular customers. My pay ranged from 20 to 40 cents per hour. That was 67 years ago and I have many fond memories of that job. I must drive up to compare the present with the past and to wrap a few burgers. Congratulations for coming to Fort Dodge.
