Senior Moments—learning and entertainment for older adults—is held on Wednesdays at 10 a.m. at the Onalaska Public Library through May 15. It is generously funded by the Ben & Floyde Sias Foundation.

Learn about Evelina Oppegard Grimes, who was well known to Minnesota community groups as the creator of “apron art.” Aprons are usually utilitarian accessories, but these aprons in the collection of Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum were made by one woman for the reasons of self-expression and public entertainment.
