The new sign for the Marquette Learning Center has been hung as the center prepares to open. Furnishings are arriving and flooring is being installed.

A lot has been going on the past couple of weeks at Marquette Learning Center. We have furnishings arriving, the flooring is approaching completion, the sign has been hung and donor names are being added to the recognition board. We are getting close to adding the finishing touches.

The fire marshal said that once we have the proper exit signs installed, he will be out directly to do his final inspection with KDHE to follow with their initial survey.

Christmas truce called in World War I a century ago

The First World War shocked the world with its brutality and casualties. But for a brief time at Christmas 1914, enemies became warm friends. Over a century ago this month, men of opposing armies in Flanders called a truce during the first Christmas of the war that has become the stuff of legend. While many of the stories of the cease-fire have been embellished with time, the truce stands in contrast to the horrific warfare that ravaged Europe.

Christmas was a low-key affair in President Lincoln’s White House

Christmas in the White House in the 1860s was a far cry from the ornate displays of decor familiar to Americans today. During the Lincoln administration, the holiday was celebrated in low-key fashion.

Celebrations of Christmas in those years were far less prevalent than today, and the White House was no exception. The first indoor Christmas tree at the White House did not appear until 1889, and the first outdoor tree lighting was not held until 1923. For President Lincoln, Dec. 25 was often a working day.
