    The stories of Tell Citians’ service in the second world war aren’t all about men. Women served crucial, albeit, less-publicized roles, too. Genevieve (Switzer) Schaefer was one of them. She enlisted in the Army Nurse Corps in March 1942 and crossed the Atlantic on a British ship that carried 7,000 soldiers, doctors and nurses.

  • FULDA – St. Boniface Catholic Parish in Fulda will celebrate the 150th anniversary of its historic church building with a two-day festival in June.

    The Fulda church was established in 1847 by the Rev. Joseph Kundek. The original church was a log building, but in 1860 construction began on the current church.

    The church features a 7-foot-thick stone foundation and a limestone slab above the door with the words “St. Boniface Kirche, 1865.”
