Letter to the Editor 2-1

Dear Editor,
 For the past year, the Kansas Humanities Council has had the pleasure of working with the National Orphan Train Complex to bring the traveling Smithsonian exhibition, “The Way We Worked” to Concordia.
 “The Way We Worked” tells the remarkable story of the American worker over the past 150 years, exploring the changes in our workplace and workforce over time and across generations. The exhibit will be at the National Orphan Train Complex through March 17, 2013. Amanda Wahlmeier and the staff and volunteers at the National Orphan Train Complex have developed an impressive list of events and exhibits for the whole community to enjoy.
 Concordia is one of only six Kansas communities selected to host the exhibit. “The Way We Worked” was previously in Lyons, Hugoton, and Goodland; and the exhibition travels to Baldwin City and Franklin through June 2013. Congratulations, Concordia!
                                            Cordially,
                                         Julie L. Mulvihill
                                      Executive Director
                        Kansas Humanities Council
