TALES OF LONG AGO
These are a collection of contributed stories.  We hope you will enjoy reading these authors views of events in the past. 

Yvonne Moen, local historical writer, has written several of these as told to her by the authors.
We sometimes wonder if it is worthwhile to reminisce of times past but we should "triumph in their accomplishments and learn from their mistakes".  Enjoy!
