Veterans Day, Meskwaki Code Talkers, Fran's Piano

Leanne Harter started our Veteran's Day program by listing the many Story County events scheduled.  Then we turned to Paul Wierson's family story from Armistice Day before going to Tama to celebrate Native American Heritage Month as Emily Chyma described how the students at South Tama High School will be honoring the Meskwaki Veterans. This led to the discovery of the story of the Meskwaki Code Talkers.  We ended our show with Kolleen Taylor, director of the Bertha Bartlett Library telling us about the arrival of Frances Bartlett Kinney's Steinway piano, which has been donated to the library.
