Book Discussion - Plainsong by Kent Haruf - Saturday, August 16 - 10AM
A heartstrong story of family and romance, tribulation and tenacity, set on the High Plains east of Denver. In the samll town of HOlt, Colorado, a high school teacher is confronted with raising his two boys alone after their mother retreats first to the bedroom, then altogether. A teenage girl -- her father long since disappeared, her mother unwilling to have her in the house -- is pregnant, alone herself, with nowhere to go. And out in the country, two brothers, elderly bachelors, work the family homestead, the only world they've ever known.

History of the Prairie du Sac Dam - Wednesday, August 27, 2014, 7PM
Join us for a DVD which is a 2008 slide presentation of the dam's construction from 1911-1915 by Denman Kramer, who started working at the dam in 1940 and was Superintendent from 1962-1982. His slides were made from glass-plate photographs taken during the construction by Frank S. Eberhart, a jeweler and photographer in Prairie du Sac. Mr. Eberhart visited the construction site several times a week and photographed the construction progress. Note also that there will be a tour of the powerhouse on September 12-14.
