Yes! Attending Reunion

I worked at 3M (in the Medical, Dental, & in Pharmaceuticals) until March 2007 - when our division was sold and I technically retired. Since April 2007 I have worked at Dyne Technologies in Woodbury. With orthopedic surgery again, I have retired - until I see the outcome of this recovery. If any of you have generously supported my business, Minnesota Territory, thank you. It has been necessary to take a leave-of-absence, due to physical limitations. So for the first time since 1967, I am not working. The most difficult part of this leave-of-absence has been in not visiting with my clients (my family members and I design, create, and publish historic images as fine art prints, postcards, maps, magnets - and books/booklets) around Minnesota at museum shops, gift & specialty stores, State park gift shops, and bookstores. I have enjoyed this venture.

I also am an historical researcher, author, and presenter (at conferences, symposiums, classes) -with a focus on mid-19th century Minnesota & Dakota Indian history. Published: The Dakota Indian Internment Camp at Fort Snelling, 1862-1864, contributed to Trail of Tears, plus a few other articles -- including one for a new journal starting in January 2010. ** Update on new journal: Friends that I work with researching & writing (most met through the Mn Historical Society) - 19th-Century Researchers - have started a new Mn history magazine called "Minnesota's Heritage". The first issue was published January 2010 (published Jan & July) - my article was "Alexander Ramsey's Words of War"

The remainder of my time is spent with my adult children, choir & church activities, and homekeeping projects at my home in Cottage Grove near Grey Cloud Island. Life has been good, with laughter, happiness, and a few tears -- but enjoyed with no regrets.

School Story:

Good memories of neighborhood friends - Judy Schnebelen, Lynn Sax, Charlotte Fillbrandt, and Kathy Schlenner - and the good neighbors living around us who alway seemed to be looking out for everyone.

Memories of good and capable teachers - Miss Klein, Mr. Joy, Mr. Gustafson, Mr. Grifffin, and Miss Ganzhorn -- plus so many others. Hoping they are all well.

I attended Dr. Martin Luther College in New Ulm, married, and then went to 916/NE Technical - now part of Century College - completed an internship at 3M-Pharmacy R&D - and was hired. After my husband died I stopped work on my MBA - but then began writing and publishing - and then founded my delightful business, Minnesota Territory.

Happy Birthday.
I am looking for "Poirier" -- one of my Father's sisters married
into the Poirier family in the early 1900's = probably before
1920 -- names of Stanley and/or Richard. These would be the
names, I suspect, of the grandfather or grandfather -- working
on the family tree.
Many thanks
