For those curious about the identity of Jean Duluth, the man whose image appears on multiple pages of the program, it seems he is a fictitious version of the person for whom Duluth is named. Despite not being real, he somehow managed to get a prominent local road -- Jean Duluth Road -- named after himself. Zenith City has the whole strange story.  

Also, with Duluth having a recent resurgence in locally made products, it might be time to revive this event, so long as everyone attending understands that everyone else is going to sing - - so you must!
