WINDOM - The Sons of Norway Stavanger Lodge 1-538 will host its next meeting at 9;30 a.m. Saturday at the Cottonwood County Historical Society, 812 Fourth Ave., Windom.

 

The morning program will be presented by Windom Area High School 11th-grade social studies teacher Sheryl Hanefeld and WAHS 11th-grade English and speech teacher Lisa Letcher,  along with participating WAHS Junior class students. They will speak on “Minnesota Humanities Grant: Living Legends in Cottonwood County.”  The grant is a one-of-its-kind project in Minnesota written by Janelle Kaye and co-sponsored by the Cottonwood County Historical Society, American Legion Post 206 and WAHS.

The purpose of the grant was to bring the entire 11th-grade class in Windom together with veterans throughout Cottonwood County who shared their military stories through an interview process.  The interviews were written by the students as narratives about the veterans, compiled and published as “Living Legends in Cottonwood County.”  Books will be available for purchase through the gift shop at the Cottonwood County Historical Society Museum.
