W/ELCA VALENTINE'S BRUNCH


W/ELCA will be having a Valentine Brunch this year instead of a lunch. The brunch will be held on February 18 at 10 AM. Tickets for the brunch will be $6.00 and will be available soon for purchase.

Denise Rostad will be the guest speaker. She will be talking about her mother's book, which Mary Rostad wrote with Susan Hessel. Squirrel is Alive: A Teenager in the Belgian Resistance and French Underground is the incredible story of Mary Rostad's early life. Rostad was 16 years old when the Nazis conquered her home city of Brussels in 1940. She joined the resistance movement, serving in Belgium and later France, primarily as a courier of underground documents. At the end of World War II, Rostad met U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Allen Rostad. They married and moved to Houston, Minnesota, in 1946. Forty years later, Mary was awarded with the Ellis Island Medal of Honor for her service to our country.
