Prairie du Chien

Ondekoza visits Prairie du Chien, WI

By Shigeyo Henriquez

A short drive from Dubuque we arrived in Prairie du Chien Sunday afternoon. After we settled into the hotel we drove to Cafe Hope (a place I will visit often this week) a few blocks away for a welcome reception. Christine Panka, Terri Connell, Mayor Dave Hemmer, School board and community members waited for us. I was here in Prairie du Chien last fall with Manhu Chinese ensemble and am very familiar with every one as a result. Christine arranged for two high school students to play flute and clarinet accompanied by piano as a welcome for us all. What a pleasant way to start the week.
