Luther College Woman's Club January Meeting
Adventure and education—both by film and by travel—will be the focus of the next meeting of the Luther College Woman’s Club (LCWC), to be held Tuesday, January 21, at 1:30 p.m. in Peace Dining Room, Dahl Centennial Union, on the Luther campus.
Nancy Sojka, president of the Oneota Film Festival (OFF) Board of Directors, will present “Oneota Film Festival XI: Inform. Inspire. Engage,” while Molly Holkesvik, Decorah High School English teacher, will present “Decorah Schools: European and Washington, D.C., Trips” with Maddie Putnam, a current DHS senior and a recent tour participant.
During her presentation, Sojka will discuss how the OFF board selects films and prepares for the festival as well as share a couple films that will be part of this year’s event. The festival will be held February 16-19, 2020, at Luther and in downtown Decorah. Holkesvik will provide an overview of trips that she helps lead for area students, including a trip to Washington, D.C., after the eighth-grade year and a trip to Europe for high school students. Among the topics she and Putnam will address are the following: who goes, where they go, what they learn, and how travel helps students develop compassion, empathy, self-awareness, independence, and social and teamwork skills.
All women from Decorah and surrounding communities are invited to attend. Shuttle service from the Decorah Swimming Pool is available and leaves at 1:10 p.m. A short business meeting, refreshments, and special music are also on the afternoon’s agenda.
