‘Where am I on Earth?’ focus of Saturday program

'Where am I on Earth?' focus of Saturday program The final class in the fall series sponsored by the Friends of the Museum, "Where am I on Earth?" will be presented Saturday, Nov. 20 at 9:30 a.m. by Sarah Chadima, geologist in the South Dakota Geology Laboratory on The University of South Dakota campus.

Chadima will demonstrate how contemporary technology helps map makers locate specific spots accurately. Several popular sites, Spirit Mound for example, have been selected to guide participants through the process.

This class, held at the W.H. Over Museum, is open to everyone, but is recommended for adults and children above fifth grade.

Saturday classes will resume mid-January with a variety of craft activity as well as historic topics, thanks to the many people who are able to be generous with their time and talents. The final activity of the year at the W.H. Over Museum, however, is yet to come.

The 32nd annual Christmas festival, "Christmas at a Prairie Museum," on Sunday, Dec. 5, will feature many artisans from woodworking to lefse cooking. In the Discovery Room, children will learn the skill of origami paper folding with member Leroy Meyer.

Attendance is free. For further information, call 677-5228 or visit the museum, 1110 Ratingen.
