Turkey Girls, part 2

Last week, Sister Dolores Super posted a blog entry about the Turkey Girls who worked at the monastery raising turkeys for sale and use in the monastery and school. This story was also part of the 2009 exhibit at the Haehn Museum at Art and Heritage Place at the monastery. The exhibit, By the Work of Our Hands, focused on sustainability and management of resources during the monastery's 152-year history. Before the exhibit closed on December 23, I went through it with Sister Moira Wild, the museum director, and she told some of the stories on video. Here is one -- that of "The Turkey Girls."

(Note: I will be posting more videos from this tour in the next few weeks. You can find them if you click here.)
