140th Anniversary Updates - November 9, 2008

Do You Remember When?
…the homeless man was living in the parish center?
…St. Nicholas had a float in the Steamboat Days Parade?
single floor vents above the furnace were the only source of heat in the church?
…the Great Flood of 1965 hit?

Can you clarify if St. Nicholas founder, Henry Zander and his family were buried in the new St. Nicholas cemetery or moved from the old into the new cemetery? Can you provide details about these stories or do you have other interesting tidbits about St. Nicholas and/or Carver’s past and more recent history that you can share? The 140th Anniversary Committee would love to hear from you.

Make the 140th celebration even more meaningful and interesting to you and your family. Submit your paragraph or longer story to, drop it at the parish center or contact 140th Committee members Kyloe Fisher at 952-448-7685 or or Jodee Korkowski at 952-361-0682 or

Any committee member removing items from the office will sign for them. Additionally, all photos and items will be returned to you as soon as possible.

The winner, as selected by the 140th Anniversary Committee, is Tiana Dauwalter. Congratulations Tiana!
We hope to use as many of the other entries as possible in some way. Thanks to everyone who participated!
