Free programs this fall thanks to Legacy grants

The Friends of the History Museum of East Otter Tail County has been awarded a grant in the amount of $1,800 to help provide support for two of the authors scheduled for their fall series, History, Heritage and Heroes produced in cooperation with the Perham Area Public Library.

The authors funded with this grant include Rae Eighmey, who will talk about her book "Food Will Win the War," on October 2, at noon, at the ITOW Veterans Museum.

Later in the month, Diane Wilson will talk about her book "Spirit Car: Journey to a Dakota Past," on October 23 at 3 p.m., at the Perham Public Library.

The grant also includes funding to provide additional workshops by the authors for students and community.

These programs are sponsored by the Perham Area Public Library and the Viking Library System and funded in part with money from Minnesota's Arts and Cultural Heritage fund.

Thanks to grants like these, all the fall programs will be free and open to the public. For more information about History Heritage and Heroes visit or email or call 218 346-7676 to be notified of upcoming events.
