Local Town Celebrations

Kelly Wiech committee chair for Huxley Prairie Fest started the show by describing the unusual activities for this year's festival to be August 26-28. Then Lynn Scarlett, executive director of the Nevada Chamber of Commerce, told us about an event with a different history of emphasis - the 33rd Lincoln Highway Days to be celebrated in downtown Nevada this weekend. We ended the show by turning north to Little Wall Lake in Hamilton County, starting with a segment from Susan Franzen on the history of sailing in central Iowa, which actually started on Little Wall Lake almost 50 years ago. This included recollections from Bernie Gerstein, Fritz Franzen, and Ursula Ruedenberg. For an update on Little Wall Lake today, we heard from Brian Lammers, Director of the Hamilton County Conservation Board.
