Eating out cost less half a century ago, as seen in this ad in The Examiner 50 years ago this week.

From The Examiner during the week of Nov. 16-21, 1970:

• “AREA CHURCHES PLAN SERVICES OF THANKSGIVING ON WEDNESDAY” – A number of local churches will cooperate in holding special Thanksgiving services next Wednesday night. Offerings taken at four services sponsored by the Independence Ministerial Alliance will go for the “Meals for Millions” foundation.

The services include First United Presbyterian Church, 100 N. Pleasant; the Rev. Dr. Billy D. Hurt, pastor of the First Baptist Church and Ministerial Alliance president, will be the speaker. The other sites: St. Mark’s United Methodist Church, 603 N. Jennings Road; Christ United Methodist, 14712 E. 39th St.; and Mount Washington RLDS Church, 9412 Independence Ave.

Eating out cost less half a century ago, as seen in this ad in The Examiner 50 years ago this week.

• “‘BEVERLY HILLBILLIES’ STARS AT NOLAND ROAD BANK SATURDAY” – Television’s best-known banker, Raymond Bailey, who plays Banker Drysdale on “Beverly Hillbillies,” will be here Saturday to help Noland Road Bank observe its fifth anniversary. Banker Drysdale (Bailey) will bring along his television secretary, Jane Hathaway (Nancy Kulp) for a morning of autograph signing and visiting.

Hopefully, Paul Henning, a native of Independence, the originator-producer-director of “Beverly Hillbillies” and several other television series, will accompany his two stars.
