‘Marilyn Monroe Day’ in Iowa

Bert Reisfeld, 1953

Of all the birthday tributes lined up for next Wednesday, this is one I’d really like to visit. It sounds very heartfelt and personal.

“KLMJ-FM and Chit Chat Cafe, Thornton, will be hosting ‘Remember Marilyn Monroe Day’ 5-7 p.m. Wednesday, June 1, at the Chit Chat Cafe, Thornton.

A ‘Remember Marilyn Monroe Dinner’ will be served 5-7 p.m. at the Chit Chat Cafe, with a Marilyn Monroe look-a-like-contest also that night. She would have been 85 on June 1.

Patrons will also be able to view the Chit Chat Cafe’s new Marilyn Monroe wall of fame and sample new menu items in honor of Monroe.

Richard Dorenkamp, owner of the Chit Chat Cafe, has been collecting Monroe pictures, posters, life-size cutouts and other memorabilia throughout his life.

Also during the event KLMJ will be playing Marilyn Monroe trivia on-air at 104.9 and online at klmj.com
