“The Fires of Autumn: The Cloquet-Moose Lake MN Disaster of 1918”
by Doris Ferguson, SGSC Member
Remembering, in these summers of forest fires, the day 100 years ago when 453 lives were lost in a few hours in northeastern Minnesota on October 12, 1918. Doris’ parents did not know each other yet, but both of them and their extended families and neighbors were greatly affected by forest fire.
Doris grew up in northeastern Minnesota and has lived in Colorado since 1954 when she came to work in the VA Hospital in Grand Junction. She is now a retired R.N., a widow, mother of three and grandmother of three.
Short: “Renovating Vintage Homes in Lindsborg”
by Jim Pugh
Jim will talk about his renovation projects in Lindsborg, specifically a stone house built in 1877 by a mason/preacher John (or Johan) Elmquist in Lindsborg, Kansas. A few of the lintel stones above the windows are carved with Bible verses in Swedish. By the fall, he hopes to have completed the restoration of this property into a vacation rental.
