Local Celebrities, Secret Identities: Holden Village: A Place Apart

Decorah Public Library is continuing a monthly program series called “Local Celebrities, Secret Identities” designed to highlight interesting work being done by members of the community. The February program in the series is called “Holden Village: A Place Apart” and is presented by Rachel Sandhorst and Jon Jensen. The program will take place in the event room at Pulpit Rock Brewery on February 23rd at 7 pm.   

Few places are so revered by those who have visited than Holden Village, the mountain retreat center deep in the wilderness of Washington’s Cascade Mountains.  Come hear about this former copper mine turned magical mountain community and how it has inspired and renewed so many from the Decorah community (perhaps including you).  Jon and Rachel will share stories of visits to Holden Village from different seasons with a focus on winter where the 300 inches of snow and sabbatical from all technology have been a regular J-term experience for Luther College students for over 25 years.  If you have been to Holden Village this is a time to connect with others and share your own experiences.  If you’ve never been to Holden (or even heard of it), this will be an opportunity to learn about a truly unique place that you just might want to put on your bucket list.
