On Thursday the planning committee met and started to partition tasks and things we need to do leading up to the tour. Later in August, we'll also be posting "volunteer opportunities" for those who would like to help on the day of the tour. We will need docents, greeters, people to setup and take down chairs in the cemetery, help with the light lunch etc. After Labor day we'll be taking reservations for the flights.
We are having a "fireman's" night, Wednesday August 21st at 6:30 in the church. If you have stories, pictures or information on the early Scandia fire department (or Floyd Sandgren or Harry Onsager specifically) please come and share your information!
One thing we can really use are pictures of the saints... As kids, at play, family, adult, working etc. We'd prefer digital pictures but if you want to drop some off in the "saints" filebox in the church office, we'll either use them in the fellowship hall display on the day of the tour or scan them and print them out. Please put your name, contact info etc on the back so we can get them back to you.
