3rd Wed, Sep 16th, Enger Park

The 80 foot tall Enger Tower (honoring West End furniture dealer Bert Enger) has rested atop “Grand Mountain” at an elevation of over 1100 feet since 1939.  In 1954, a Duluthian discovered a large Buddhist bell among war materials slated for meltdown.  A UMD professor traced the identity of that bell and it was returned to Ohara, Japan as an act of friendship.  In 2010, that city—now a sister city of Duluth—erected a replica named the American-Japanese Peace Bell in Enger Park.  Lake Superior Freethinkers has reserved outdoor tables at this historic site from 5:30 pm on Wednesday, September 16th. Please bring your own dinner and beverage to enjoy along with the view and the companionship of our typical Third Wednesday Social.
