The streetscape project, "The Early Streets of Kalona" is one more way to preserve the histo- ry of our town and carry on the vision that the original Board of Directors - Edith Boone, Marie Jackson, Glen Wahl, John and Marilyn Woodin, Ike Yoder and L. David Yoder - had for sharing our rich history with others. With this project, the com- mittee hopes to give thousands of visitors every year a glimpse of our heritage with the "new" Wahl Museum. Our goal is to have these visitors stay a while in order to explore and walk through the early days of Kalo- ha. The project committee is kicked off a fundraising cam- paign May 1 to give area resi- dents an opportunity to assist with funds for the new muse- um. Grants have been applied for through the Historic Re- source Development Program at the state level and locally through the Washington River- ;t will boat Foundation. The Rotary Club of Kalona has offered to assist with the proceeds from its annual om- elet breakfast going to the proj- ect. The omelet breakfast will be at the Kalona United Meth- odist Church on Saturday, May 6, from 6:30 a.m. to noon, with streetscape members helping this year. The founders of Kalona were definitely visionaries. The committee is dedicated to being historically accurate in the stories told from the area and hopes for great support from the area to help preserve these stories from our past and give visitors to the village a warm experience they will carry with them for years to come. If you, a family member or friend wishes to donate pho- tographs, artifacts, stories or funds to this project, please send them to: Streetscape Proj- ect "Early Days of Kalona," Kalona Historical Village, P.O. Box 92, Kalona, IA 52247. You may follow the progress on the group's Facebook page in the future. Mid-Prairie High School held served to all those who attend- its 5th Annual Dance Mara- ed.
