Everyone is welcome to attend.  Plates, napkins, utensils and drinks will be provided.  Members are asked to bring one to two dishes to share.  

The Annual meeting will consist of the election of officers for 2013, an update from Susan Sutton on The Way We Worked exhibit, a recap of 2012 accomplishments and a overview of 2013 goals.  

WWII POW Camp Concordia Preservation Society is a group of individuals dedicated to the preservation of the remnants of Camp Concordia and the story of how over 4,000 German POWs were housed at the camp.  While most of the old camp site has been returned back to farm land, remnants including a few of original foundations of buildings, a Main Gate Guard Post, the water tower base, Officer's Club, one of the stone guard towers and building T-9 still stand as a reminder of this important part of our history.
