Tales of the early settlers of the Stryker community will be the subject of the program planned for the annual meeting of the Stryker Area Heritage Council on Nov. 13.
Will Peugeot, a 1966 graduate of Stryker High School and a retired Lutheran minister, will talk about the contributions many of the early settlers made to establish the Stryker community and make it grow.
Peugeot will share stories he has uncovered in his research dealing with people in his family and other pioneers who made a rough territory into their home.
The Stryker Area Heritage Council invites anyone who would like to hear the program to come and enjoy the evening.
The night will begin at 6:00 p.m. at the Stryker United Methodist Church with a short look at the activities of the council and election of three trustees. A dinner featuring ham loaf, scalloped potatoes, tossed salad, roll, pie and coffee or lemonade put on by the United Methodist Women of the church will follow the 15 minute session. Mr. Peugeot will speak after the dinner.
Cost for the meal is $10 which is payable at the door the night of the program. Reservations are due by Nov. 8 and may be made by calling 419-445-3242 or on the Stryker Area Heritage Council’s website at www.strykerhistory.org.
Those who would just like to hear the program are invited to come after the meal at no charge.
