CORRECTION: March 9 Learning in Retirement topic will be suffering in Siberian work camps

Contrary to what we published in our March 7 print issue, the program for the March 9 session of Learning in Retirement is titled, ?My Aunt?s 11 Years in Siberian Forced Labor.?

Author Katie Funk Wiebe will talk how suffering received a new face when thousands of Germans caught in the aftermath of World War II were shipped like cattle into exile to face hunger, frigid cold and religious restriction. David Brown will lead the session leader.

Learning in Retirement meets at 9:50 a.m. in the lobby of the Wohlgemuth Music Education Center. Registration for the entire semester of presentations is $15 for an individual or $29 per couple. Admission for an individual session is $4. LIR participants can take in lunch in the college cafeteria following the program for an additional fee of $4.

For more information, contact Connie Isaac, coordinator, at 620-947-5964, or The semester schedule can be found at

The program we highlighted in our March 7 issue is scheduled for March 16. Susie Haver of Concordia will present a light-hearted presentation, ?Aprons, The Great American Cover-up,? which should trigger memories of growing up.
