The Northeast Iowa Peace and Justice Center (NEIJPC) will host , "Know Your Local Government", a monthly program every second Saturday at 11 a.m.

Saturday, Oct. 12, Decorah City Clerk Wanda Hemesath will be the featured guest.

"Many of us know Wanda from seeing her at the municipal building, at City Council and about town, but how many know the extent of what she does for the city? This is an opportunity to

become acquainted with Wanda more personally and to learn about and appreciate the many services she renders to the community," said Julie Fischer of NEIJPC.

Coffee and refreshments will be served. Those who wish can remain for a noon potluck,

sponsored by the Decorah Organization for Vegan Education (DOVE).
