Just a reminder that everyone is cordially invited to attend the dedication of the KHS Monument on Saturday, August 19th at 3pm. This will take place at the site of the former high school.

There will be music, guest speakers, and a free-will offering lunch served in the basement of First Lutheran church (featuring the original recipe KHS sloppy joes) following the dedication.

Coffee mugs, Christmas ornaments, wine tumblers, original bricks from the school and other memorabilia will be for sale. Cash, check or Venmo accepted. We hope to see you there.

First of all, a big THANK YOU to everyone for your kind words addressed to members of the KHS Monument Committee. This was/is a labor of love, and we continue to be dedicated to erecting a symbol of the history, the importance of education to our community, along with an actual place to gather to reminisce and to remember.  It is something our community can be proud to share with others. 
We aren’t done yet, however!!  We are still accepting donations towards bronze signage explaining the history with a visual of each of the school buildings from beginning to the present, a couple of benches for seating, and balancing the books.   Besides donations, pavers are still available for purchase. July 30, 2023, is the date pavers are due so that they are in place for the August 19th dedication.  Please consider a donation, if you’re able, so this project can be completed. Thanks, again, for your support!!

Monument Update: September 9th, 2022:

Pavers are scheduled to be installed at the KHS monument site starting September 21st, 2022.

Thank you to all who have purchased pavers in honor of loved ones, coaches, teachers, teammates, and teams. They are going to look great!

Monument Update: July 29th, 2022:

Ahhhhh. And you thought we might leave it that way? Nope…here’s the evidence that there is more to this than you’d think! These are ‘capstones’ and they will be placed on top of the serpentine wall to close it off. They arrived yesterday and will be placed when the stone mason has the minutes to give us. That means our job is (maybe halfway?) done. There is landscaping which involves placing the pavers you have donated. That will be happening this summer as well. So you still have time to order a paver, or just plain donate. WE STILL NEED YOUR HELP! You have come to the field and given us support. Please keep it going! OUr Vikings didn’t give up, you can’t either. Let us hear from you with financial and verbal support. We depend on you to finish this project.

And stay tuned right here….in time, you will see actual Viking head pavers….cost yet to be determined, we’ll be back to you soon! Go Vikes.


What was behind that tent? Nope, it wasn’t that Lost Norwegian….

the answer….more of an idea what our project will look like when completed!

Please enjoy, take in, and reflect on the fun and games you had during your years at KHS.

And while you do that, we need you! Please Help Us Finish This Monument. It’s a very complex process.

We are now looking at the pavers.

This is a very important part of our project….it’s your personal stamp and a chance to memorialize someone or something that you want remembered.

Please remember that the price of a paver today is $100….but the price goes on to $130 on March 15. Purchase a paver today!
