Volunteers Vernon Winterhof, Virdene Otto, and Gene Suhr working on the Feed Shed at the Hanover Village.

If you have traveled C-65 or M-27 recently you may have noted that a major restoration project is underway on the Feed Shed at the Hanover Village. The entire east side of the building has been removed because the wooden sill, studs, and sheeting had been damaged by moisture and rotted. As with most of the restoration and maintenance projects of the village, this is being accomplished by volunteer labor. A grant from Thrivent Financial is assisting in the cost of materials. The sill and studs are being replaced with new lumber. The sheeting on the walls will be salvaged plywood, and the stamped metal siding will be put back.

The Hanover Historical Society has learned that the KICD Tractor Ride will visit the village on June 18. The popular Hanover Festival is scheduled for Sunday, August 29.
