Burr Oak, IA 7-16-94
Visited here today, a hotel they managed for a year in 1876.  Very interesting.  Then drove up US 52 to Rochester, MN.  Saw some Amish women selling baked goods & jellies out of their wagon on the way.

This morning visited 2 of the Amana colonies, which I vaguely remembered.  Tomorrow I think we'll rest then go to Twin Cities on Monday.  Conference starts Monday.  

Love - M.V.
 Holland Hall Tower postcard - mailed 1994.  Captioned: The tower of Holland Hall is a landmark at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota.  Built in 1925 and modeled after a part of the fortress-monastery of Mont St. Michel in Normandy, France, Holland Hall set the date for much of the stone architecture which was to follow as the St. Olaf campus expanded.

I don't know how much of Northfield you remember, but St. Olaf has such a beautiful campus.  The emphasis this week is on singing the psalms, which is very interesting.  They keep us busy from 7AM-10PM, which makes for a long day but certainly get your $'s worth.

Will probably arrive in NV on Sat. night after dinner.  Appreciate your TLC for Ginny.

Love, MV
