OUR OCTOBER MEETING - October 13
“Seed of the Volga,” is the topic of the Cheyenne Genealogical and Historical Society’s free program on Tuesday, October 13 in the Sunflower Room of the Laramie County Library. Wyoming native, Karen Wamhoff Schutte, will present information on the research she did on her Volga German family for her second book, “The Seed of the Volga.” Her story takes the reader through the struggles her family faced while surviving world wars, economic depression, and the news that their oldest son was listed as MIA in the Philippines. She will reveal their life saga of love, sorrow, and disappointment as they came to this country “with a sugar beet hoe in one hand and the Bible in the other.” Schutte’s first novel, “The Ticket,” was selected as the Best Historical Fiction Novel for 2013 by the Wyoming State Historical Society, with her second book receiving the same award in 2014. The CGHS meeting will begin at 6 p.m. with a social and short business meeting, followed by Schutte’s program at 7 p.m. For questions or more information, call Wendy at 630-0924.
