No word from Windom

A little over a month ago I emailed the Windom Chamber of Commerce regarding some information I found declaring them the "Home of the Beef Commercial." Thus far, I have heard nothing back.

Perhaps my e-mail fell on deaf ears, or I was dismissed as a nut case, or maybe nobody is minding the store? Not sure.

Whatever the case, the pursuit goes on, and I will dig up information wherever I can!

I grew up in Windom, and my family has lived in the area for many years, but I've never heard anything about Windom being the home of the beef commercial.

If I had to make a guess, I would say that it might have something to do with a Windom institution, the "Corner Cafe." It's no longer there, but I remember having a beef commercial there when I was very young.

Maybe you could contact the Cottonwood County Historical Society? I'm betting that the Chamber of Commerce just didn't know how to respond.

Elsa, thanks for stopping by and commenting. I appreciate the information and the suggestions! I hope to get back on track with some pursuits and research, so I will check with the historical society to see if there is anything to that story.
