Clubs and Organizations Historical Society receives acquisitions
Joni and Annie Kjar presented the program at the regular meeting of the Union County Historical Society at the museum on Monday evening, July 18.
Annie was one of a five-member team from Akron-Westfield Schools that won first place in the Iowa National History Day competition in April for their 10 minute presentation of Tinker vs. Des Moines. The presentation was a dramatization of �students in Des Moines wearing black armbands in 1965 to protest the deaths in the Viet Nam War. The presentation included a court scene.
The five young people involved advanced to the National finals in Washington, D.C., and took fourth place in the nation.�The Akron students visited points of interest in the nation�s capitol and had a tour of the White House.
There were a number of acquisitions this month that include books, pictures of Elk Point sport teams, clothing, Sioux River flood pictures and a citizens� band radio.
The next regular meeting will be Roseni Lutheran church near the Union Grove Park. It will be a pot luck dinner Monday, Aug. 15, at 6:30 p.m. with a short business meeting. Someone from the church will lead a tour of the building and give a history of the congregation. Any one interested is invited, bring a covered dish, salad or dessert and join us for the meal and program.
