Saturday, April 6, LAHS Annual Meeting
at Pine Creek Golf Course:  Terry Visger related the tale of the clammer’s wife

Visger stitched together the facts about clamming on the upper Mississippi River with the rigors of daily life in a bygone era of American history.  An accomplished educator, Visger has been an entertaining storyteller for nearly 20 years.  Learn more about Terry Visger by clicking on this link  Tales by Terry

We continue to interview elders in the

We also make copies of the interview for each family.

Thanks to Don Hill, we now have a dvd duplicator!  A gift truly appreciated and put to immediate use.
