A Minnesotan Celebrity
On June 10, 1922, Frances Ethel Gumm — aka Judy Garland — was born in Grand Rapids, Minnesota (about 165 miles north of lovely, Maple Grove.)
When the famous professional wrestler George Raymond Wagner known as "Gorgeous George" retired, he quipped,
"No more wrestlin' .. I'm takin up gardening."
When Garland heard this comment, she sent him a couple of pots of her hibiscus.
