ASHHS Quarterly Meeting

The American/Schleswig-Holstein Heritage Society (ASHHS) quarterly meeting will be held at 1:30 p.m., on Sunday, February 18, 2018, at the Walcott American Legion, 121 W. Bryant St., Walcott, Iowa.

The speaker will be Janet Schlapkohl who lives in Iowa City and has written a play depicting the immigration experience of a young man from Schleswig Holstein to Iowa.

The play entitled “Here I’m Hank”, is based on family stories passed down in her family about members of her family who immigrated from Schleswig Holstein to Iowa. The play has been performed throughout Iowa, including at our recent Low German Friendship Conference in Manning, Iowa. She will be performing several excerpts from the play

Light refreshments will be provided. The program is free and open to the public. The American Legion Hall is handicap accessible. For more information, call Mary Ann Muller 563-284-6640, or e-mail
