ST. PAUL – State Representative Greg Davids (R-Preston) said he was recently notified that a pair of projects in southeastern Minnesota are receiving Minnesota Legacy funding grants.
“This is great news for both of these worthwhile programs,” Davids said. “My congratulations to all who helped secure this funding.”
The Harmony Area Historical Society receives $7,235 to create 14 Harmony area entries for the MNopedia project for online research.
The Giants of the Earth Heritage Center in Spring Grove will receive $5,750 for Phase I research for its Ola and Per Exhibit. This will allow for the hiring of a qualified consultant to research the history of Peter Rosendahl and his Ola and Per cartoon in preparation for a future exhibit.
The grants are awarded from an appropriation by the legislature from the Legacy Amendment’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
