Salem Lutheran to
"Explore Our Heritage"

As part of the history of the Parkston area, Salem Lutheran Church will host a road trip to four area cemeteries Sunday, May 22.
Four rural churches disbanded and as a whole or in part became part of Salem Lutheran. The four cemeteries remain, and Salem Lutheran is responsible for their care.
The cemeteries are Wittenberg, Kulm, Rosenfeld and Eigenfeld.
All who are interested in this history or may have family members buried there are invited to join this tour. A car-a-van will leave Salem Lutheran Church at 10:15 a.m. Each cemetery will be visited--a brief history will be given followed by a memorial prayer and time to explore.
At the last stop, a picnic lunch will be held. Participants are to bring a sack lunch and a lawn chair and join this exploration of the Parkston area history.
