The following appeared in The Rock County Herald on January 13, 1905.
The committee in charge of the Modern Woodmen’s annual dance which is to be given next Thursday, January 19, have completed all arrangements in a very satisfactory manner and the indications are that the dance will be one of the most enjoyable entertainments of the kind ever given by the lodge.
As previously announced the dance will be held in Union hall; Odd Fellows’ ball will be used for cards and other games, and supper will be served in the Arcade building.
The lodge has secured Prof. Ainsworth’s orchestra of Mason City, which has no equal in the entire northwest.
As announced in these columns a few weeks ago, the lodge this year will not send out invitations except to neighboring lodges as a whole, and to the members of their own lodge. This action is taken to avoid the possibility of missing some whom the lodge would like to have attend, a result which it is practically impossible to avoid in sending out a large number of invitations.
Therefore, to the general public, they extend through the columns of the Herald, a cordial invitation to attend. All are invited and all will be made as welcome as they have ever been at any previous party given by this hospitable lodge.
The price of tickets for the dance will be $1, which will include supper for two. No admission will be charged to the card rooms. A charge of 25 cents per plate will be made for supper to all who do not dance, and also to those holding dance tickets who bring more than one lady to supper with them.
         Donations to the Rock County Historical Society can be sent to the Rock County Historical Society, 312 E. Main Street, Luverne, MN 56156.
