This is the first of likely two slideshows that will be posted from the Arn Kind-Minnesota in the Great War program held on November 16th at the SV Community Center. We had over 80 people in attendance, and through surveys we have had an almost unanimous request to bring him back again. As Arn and I spoke about at the program, the project was funded by the people of Minnesota through the Arts and Cultural Heritage/Library Legacy Fund in cooperation with SELCO, the regional library system. The programming supported by this grant is intended to support arts, arts education and arts access, and to preserve Minnesota’s history and cultural heritage. If you enjoyed the program and would like to continue to have the opportunity to have these programs available please write your local legislators. Let them know that Legacy funding is needed and that you find value in the programs it allows us to bring to the community. What a FUN night for all!
I had a little trouble with the firearm.

The library will be closing early at 5:00 pm on Friday, November 16th to accommodate the Arn Kind, MN in the Great War program we are sponsoring at the Community Center. The program starts at 6:00 pm. We hope to see you there!
Please join us for an evening full of adventure, education, and remembrance. Learn about the role Minnesotan’s played in WWI as Arn Kind brings to life the history of the battlefields and more.
This presentation is a wonderful way to commemorate the contributions and sacrifices made by Minnesotan’s during World War I. The Great War is often called the forgotten war because people know so little about it as compared to World War II and America’s other conflicts. MINNESOTA IN THE GREAT WAR will enlighten us and cause us to come away from the program realizing what an epic event it was and how it set the stage for many important events that would follow in the 20th and 21st century.
This multimedia presentation will use power-point, video, music, drama, role-playing and living history experiences, to give us an understanding of this turbulent time and make history come alive for us.
This performance is most appropriate for upper elementary students through adults.
