LOCAL NEWS!
Eleven new Swedish immigrants have arrived in Almelund.
  They can't vote, eat or even speak - but they are located throughout Almelund and at the museum.   The hand-painted figures depict the history of the village with a school teacher at the town hall - which was the 1890 Almelund school.  There are two children at the museum in Swedish costumes inviting you to take a walk around the site.   A pickup with milk cans and a farmer with his cow are a nod to the agricultural history of the area.   Two ladies in fancy dress going to church and two guys playing checkers on a lutefisk barrel.   Help us enjoy them - and take care of them. There are a total of nine figures - see if you can find them all!  If you'd like to help with this project, call Lin @ 651-269-3580.

All of these figures were purchased with Almelund Apple Festival donations and donations from local residents.   More will arrive next year.   Visit them today!    Click here for a brochure!  

                                                                                          **********
