Lewis & Clark topic of classes The first of three classes on Lewis & Clark will be presented Saturday, Feb. 20, at 9:30 a.m. at the W. H. Over Museum.

This first class is a reenactment by Duane Olsen of Elk Point in which he will portray the French trader that met with Lewis & Clark in 1804.

On Saturday, March 20, Dr. Tom Gasque will talk about the Lewis & Clark expedition itself and how it came to be.

The third class in the trilogy will be held on Saturday, April 24. Sarah Chadima will challenge the audience with the question, "How did Lewis and Clark find their way?"

All classes are from 9:30 a.m. – 11 a.m. as a community service. These three classes are part of the Saturday morning classes established two years ago by the Friends of the Museum. Through Karen Mahood, education chair, a wide variety of experiences are offered.

For example, other classes coming up include a scavenger hunt on Feb. 27, learning to make beaded earings on March 6, and the ever popular Easter basket making and egg hunt for the small fry on March 27.

Please call the Museum at 677-5228 to pre-register for any or all of these free classes.
