Senior Hospitality Center to host speaker Nov. 12

The Seniors Hospitality Center in Decorah will host guest speaker Midge Kjome of the Decorah Genealogy Association Friday, Nov. 12.

The Decorah Genealogy Association tasked with collecting all the names of Winneshiek County Veterans for the new Veterans monument needs the public’s help.

“The Seniors Hospitality Center will host guest speaker Genealogist Midge Kjome, Decorah Genealogy Association, and learn about the association’s role in the Winneshiek County Veterans Memorial at our November program (Friday, Nov. 12),” shared Program Chair Gerry Sorenson.

The Decorah Genealogy Association plays a pivotal role in the new Winneshiek County Veterans Memorial. It needs the community’s aid to ensure all Winneshiek County Veterans are listed on the monument. The monument will be installed at the Mary Christopher Park on East Water Street in Decorah.
