Luncheon date at Klondike Days Elwood hits trail of '98 With his string tie properly adjusted and his top 'hat at a rakish angle, Elwood Glover will head west for the second week of Edmonton's annual Klondike Days festival, July 23rd to 29th. Along with producer Drew Crossan, band leader Sonny Caulfield and senior research- er Leslie Cunnlan, Elwood will invade the Macdonald Hotel's Silver Slipper Saloon for five days of panning the gold of western hospitality.
