Flora Oveson of Duluth tells us about her club.

In April 2004, shortly after the opening of the Richard I. Bong Veterans Historical Center in Superior, I started the Bong Book Club. We have 14 members and the club consists of men and women interested in the history of World War II. Included are veterans, widows of veterans, volunteers within the Bong Center and individuals interested in the historic events and people of the war.

We meet on the second Tuesday of each month at 2 p.m. at the Richard I. Bong Veterans Historical Center. Our group has an informal discussion on a previously agreed upon book or topic from the prior month. We also have other extended Book Club activities and always welcome new members. For more information, contact Flora Oveson at (218) 728-3942.
