Nordic Lodge members hear a little about the planned presentations at their recent monthly meeting – from two participatingjsw_k.t students.

Turning Points in History: People, Ideas, Events is the theme for this year’s National History Day Competition. Coupeville has five entries this year. Three entries are in the senior division; two are in the junior division. Students are working on the following topics (1) Seabees (2) The deinstitutionalization of mental health facilities and how Service Alternatives created a unique service program for those who would have been previously confined to institutions (3) A labor strike by lumber workers in 1917 that led to significant changes in labor rights (4) D-Day ( 5) The Berlin Wall.

Members of the public are invited to attend this program to support participating students in practicing their presentations – and to learn a little history!
