Prisoners of War in Iowa Feb 27, 2019 from 06:30 PM to 07:30 PM Hawkins Memorial Library,
There were about 25,000 German, Italian, and Japanese POWs in Iowa during World War II. These are soldiers that were taken prisoner during battles and held in Iowa during the war. Iowa had two main camps; Algona and Clarinda; and about 17 branch camps throughout the state. At the branch camps, the POWs worked for a short time on a specific project. Linda was able to speak with people who had the prisoners work on their farms, or worked with them in canning factories. She shares their memories in her book.

10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer's
Alzheimer’s and other dementias cause changes in memory, thinking and behavior that interfere with daily life. We learned about 10 common warning signs and what to watch for in yourself and others. The Alzheimer’s Association presented an educational program at Hawkins Memorial Library on Wednesday, February 6, at 2 PM. Participants learned about typical age-related changes, common warning signs, how to approach someone about memory concerns, early detection, the benefits of a diagnosis and the diagnostic process, and Alzheimer’s Association resources. This program was free and open to the public.
Prisoners of War in Iowa
Iowa author Linda Betsinger McCann talked about her newly released book, Prisoners of War in Iowa, at Hawkins Memorial Library on Wednesday, February 27, at 6:30 PM. There were about 25,000 German, Italian, and Japanese POWs in Iowa during World War II. These are soldiers that were taken prisoner during battles and held in Iowa during the war. Iowa had two main camps; Algona and Clarinda; and about 17 branch camps throughout the state. At the branch camps, the POWs worked for a short time on a specific project. Linda was able to speak with people who had the prisoners work on their farms, or worked with them in canning factories. She shares their memories in her book, Prisoners of War in Iowa. This program is open to the public and free of charge. Full of stories gained in her research, Linda welcomed questions, discussion on the topic, and stories shared.
