Happy Back to School!

By: Lori Williamson | Item of the Day | September 6, 2022

Welcome back to school students, parents, teachers, and the wider community!
Today we share this adorable photo of Rolland Sande on his first day of school with his brother Glenn. It was taken in Thief River Falls, 1928.
Hope everyone has a good year!
