Kim Krieger, Public Relations/Media Relations of Sauder Village, spoke to the Stryker Rotary Club at their regular meeting on Tuesday April 25th. Kim has been with Sauder Village for 22 years and has seen many improvements to the complex over that period of time. This season marks the 40th year the village has been open to the public. The goal has continued to be education about the history of the black swamp area. Today’s complex spans over 239 acres with 75 structures. The Village has 400 employees who are assisted by another 500 adult and youth volunteers. The large museum on the complex was closed for part of last year’s season because of flooding problem, but has reopened for this season. The camp ground has also been expanded to include 87 full service campsites. Kim spoke to the club on the opening day of the season that will run through till the end of October. The village displays the life of the area people during a time period from 1803 to 1920. Special attractions are also part of the experience with 25 different attractions taking place during the season. Kim, pictured on the right, spoke as a guest of Stryker Rotary Member Terry Wieland.
