Joske's Quarter Century Club

Creator Abstract:
Content Abstract: Joske’s Quarter Century Club was created by the company as a way to thank 25-year veteran workers with free monthly breakfasts, jewelry and a 25% discount. The Club has brought former employees of Joske’s together since 1933. Even after the store shut down, the Joske’s Quarter Century Club kept going, bringing employees back for socials and luncheons two to three times per year. The Club disbanded in 2012 and held its final meeting at Trinity Lutheran Church on December 1, 2012. The collection consists of: 5 photograph albums; a scrapbook; a brief history of Joske’s; 8 copies of Joske’s Jabberwocky, the employee newsletter; an employee handbook; a Sterling Sales employee card; and a Joske’s ChargaPlate.
