Tell It Like It Was - 3rd Tuesdays in Augusta


Updated August 6 with a new featured guest, Patsy Baravik, in August, and announcement of September's guest.

On Tuesday, July 30, the first in a series public interviews featuring Augusta residents who have been around long enough to tell the rest of us what life was like in Augusta and the surrounding area in years gone by, was held. The live interview took place at the Visitors Center and featured Vic Kuchem. The next interview will be August 20 and will feature Patsy Baravik. A panel of interviewers (Jan Cross, Dave Klaas, Glenda Drier and Paul Ovaitt.) will ask questions, but the public is invited to attend and ask questions of their own. The interviews are video recorded and will be given to The Friends of Historic Augusta museum. Starting with the August event, ”Tell it Like it Was” interviews are planned for the third Tuesday of each month at the Visitors Center at 6:30 p.m. On September 17th the featured guest will be Bob Struckhoff, local farmer and Fire Chief for the Augusta Fire Dept.  The public is invited and encouraged to attend.
