History Alive Project volunteers, Dave & Ruth Amundson, having been asked to organize and then conduct a walking tour of the Our Savior's Cemetery on August 13, led 20+ attendees through the Site.
While the group dodged the drizzle, they learned about their Church's long history that included its origin and integrated history with Coon Prairie Lutheran Church, the forming of Our Savior's 1 and 2 Congregations and their two buildings and the St. Petri Church connection.
Gravestones selected for special interest included:
those with interesting artwork, those whose graves were of various members, that played a role in their Church history and the evolution of gravestone shapes and designs over many decades.
Many on the tour contributed their own knowledge and opinions at the various stops which only enriched the dialogue shared with everyone.
History Alive Project sincerely thanks the Our Savior's for working with us to have this event be the success that it was!
