Just wanted to alert all our friends that we lost three of the German-Russian ladies that consented to being interviewed for the Tri-County Tourism Alliance projects.
Maggie Herr from Maggie’s Cafe
Ellen Tuttle who was interviewed at 100 years of age and made it to 105
It was only a stroke of luck that I asked Sandy and Ida to identify the photos that we collected from Ida when we did the interview for Women Behind the Plow.
Beginning in January I will be putting a small book together about country schools. It will fill in the gap between Ewiger Saatz and Women Behind the Plow.
It makes it a little more important that we work on these projects as soon as we can. If you have memories and photos of country schools in the tri-county area, please share them with us by emailing high resolution jpegs and Word documents to email@example.com.
Our condolences go out to the families of Ellen, Ida and Maggie, knowing that we can still hear their story though Ewiger Saatz.
