Powder Keg Celebrating 50 Years!

Powder Keg in Fairview invites everyone to help celebrate their 50th Anniversary now through May 15 with daily specials on food and drinks which will be posted on Facebook, as well as nightly drawings for a $50 gift card, no purchase necessary.

Harold and Charlene Helland opened Powder Keg May 7, 1972 with endless support from the community. A veteran of the Korean War, Harold credits "the greatest generation" World War II vets with pushing him to get a job, go to college, and create a good life for himself and his family. He became a teacher and principal at Fairview School, then left to pursue other passions, like food.

At 90 plus, Harold is still involved with Powder Keg, continuing to plow snow, and give advice where needed.

His son Clay purchased the business in 1992 and has worked hard to update and improve the restaurant without losing its original charm. "Clay is doing a hell of a good job," Harold said proudly. "He put this place on the map."

Come in and celebrate with Clay, Harold, and the entire team at Powder Keg!
