September 28, 2007 To Eula's family: On behalf of the Christdala Preservation Association in Millersburg, where Eula grew up, we wish to extend our sympathy to her family. The Hamann's were a part of the old Millersburg community for many years and in July 2007 our Preservation Association purchased the old Millersburg Schoolhouse where the Hamann children, inclkuding Eula, attended grade school before going on to high school in Northfield. We are now in the process of creating a Millersburg Schoolhouse Museum at the old Millersburg Schoolhouse and will have our first meeting on Friday, October 5, 2007 at 3:00 pm at the old Christdala Church two miles west of Millersburg to initiate activity for the museum. Hamann family members are welcome to attend this kickoff meeting. We hope to create sections in the museum to commemorate families that lived in the Millersburg area and attended the old Millersburg School. If any of Eula's family members have old pictures of Eula and the Hamann brothers at the Millersburg School, this might be a wonderful way to remember them for posterity. You are very welcome to join our effort and once again, please accept our sincere sympathy. Sincerely, Wayne Quist Secretary Christdala Preservation Association Millersburg Schoolhouse Museum 952-270-8764
