After refreshments, the meeting continued with a program by La Porte County Historical Society President Bruce Johnson. He displayed documents and photographs related to his ancestors from Sweden, who emigrated from a southern part of that country and settled in the part of La Porte County commonly labeled “the Swedish Hills”.

On September 13, 2016, at 7 PM, the society will meet again at the Park Department. The recipients of certificates for early residency in La Porte County will be honored. Guests and questions are always welcome.
