The Mistletoe Ball

The years 1968 through 1969 continued with a healthy economic climate and there was an eighty-second revival of the Elk Club's Mistletoe Ball. Co-chairmen, appointed by Exalted Ruler Woodie Ellis, were Dr. W. W. Wendt and Mayor Al Koebig. Publicity chairman was Wilton Woods. Woods stated that the Ball was the idea of Eugene Nolte in 1886, when he suggested a ball be given for the ladies. The Mistletoe Ball was originally held in Klein's Opera House in the Tips building.
