Clubs and Organizations ELCA women enjoy day out On sunny Saturday morning, Aug. 23, Women of the ELCA from Trinity Lutheran Church, Vermillion, traveled to Sioux Falls on their annual â�?�?Out-and-About Day.â�? Members visited the Center for Western Studies located on the Augustana College campus. They were met by Thomas Houle and Frank Gibbs, volunteers, who introduced them to the center and its collections. Permanent exhibits include the Fantle Scandinavian Room, displaying a collection of rosemaled household furnishings in a replica of a 19th-century Norwegian home; the Froiland Plains Indian Room with an abundance of beaded, quilted, and painted articles; and the Jim Savage Art Studio, his original workshop, installed in the center and displaying the craftsmanâ�?�?s carvings, which represent life in the west. Since June 5, the centerâ�?�?s galleries have featured an exhibition called â�?�?The American Spiritâ�?; the show and sale continue through Aug. 31. The large exhibit of Uncle Sam and other patriotic American images and icons is taken from the collection of Gerald E. Czulewicz Sr. His collections contain more than 4,000 objects and is the largest of its kind in the world. Before returning to Vermillion, the women enjoyed lunch at newly renovated Tre Lounge at 601 West 33rd St. in Sioux Falls.
