Welcome back for a new season of Monday Mornings at Main!
Beginning February 7, 2022, we invite you to join us in person for lifelong learning programs designed for ages 50 and better. For the month of February, we’ll meet offsite at the Myrick Park Eco Center. We’ll return to the Main Hall of the La Crosse Public Library March 7 – April 25.
- On February 21, we'll learn about "The Founding of the Luxembourg American Military Cemetery" presented by Sandy Hammes at Myrick Park Center. It is an emotionally impactful presentation surrounding the building of this cemetery which was necessary to enable the timely burial of over 5,000 Americans who perished in the winter battles of 1944\45. It remains today as a hallowed and revered place visited by many Luxembourg Americans. It also served as the resting spot for General George S. Patton who requested to be buried there. Copies of Sandy's book: "From Luxembourg to La Crosse and Beyond – 1851 to 1910" will also be available for purchase.
